SunCubes is an innovative startup which goal is to build the future space energy infrastructure through its innovative satellites' recharging system.
Currently, satellite manufacturers must oversize their solar panels and batteries to meet power requirements, leading to higher costs and weight. SunCubes aims to provide a network of standard satellites for producing and storing energy, which will be transferred to client satellites. This will result in a significant reduction in cost and weight, up to 40%, as well as improved mission flexibility.
Furthermore, the improved satellite lifetime, as a result of better battery performance, will also benefit clients.
SunCubes has received recognition for its efforts, winning the first SGAC prize in the 3rd "Italian Space Startup Competition" and being awarded the 30k euro grant from Movyon after winning the pre-acceleration program offered by PoliHub.
