SIMBA is a 3U CubeSat mission to measure the Total Solar Irradiance and Earth Radiation Budget climate variables with a miniaturized radiometer instrument sponsored by ESA and led by the Royal Meteorological Institute Belgium (RMIB). ISIS will deliver the platform for this mission integrated with the miniaturized radiometer instrument, developed by RMIB.



First Jordanian satellite, JY1-SAT is a 1-Unit CubeSat developed with the Crown Prince Foundation of Jordan. The project is conducted in collaboration with AMSAT-UK, developing a customized version of the FUNcube payload with the purpose of being able to downlink images of Jordanian landmarks and a voice recording of HRH Crown Prince Al Hussein Bin Abdullah of Jordan.



First Dutch military satellite, the BRIK-II project aims at assessing the relevance of CubeSats for military operations. The satellite mission is co-developed by ISIS, NLR and the Royal Netherlands Air Force. ISIS will deliver a turnkey 6-Unit CubeSat platform and the ground segment, capable of carrying and operating the 3 payloads of the mission. The launch is expected in 2019.



ISIS is developing the turnkey 6-Unit CubeSat platforms for the Dutch company Hiber, aiming at providing a global IoT service as of 2018. The first 2 satellites will prove the concept and offer a first pilot service. The project is conducted in close cooperation with Hiber and Hyperion Technologies, all three companies having now R&D offices next to each other in Delft.



QB50 is an exciting space science project that has CubeSats at the heart of the mission. Lead by the Von Karman Institute (VKI) in Belgium, QB50 aims to investigate three properties of the lower Thermosphere by doing in-site measurements with 40-50 nanosatellites.



NCLE (The Netherlands - China Low Frequency Explorer) is a scientific instrument built to detect low frequency radio emissions from the early universe in order to explore its structure. It will fly on the Chinese Chang’e 4 relay satellite, which will be positioned behind the moon.



The project consists of 2 AIS tracking satellites: Triton 1 & Triton 2 that use ISIS’ patented AIS receiver technology serving as pathfinder missions for a full constellation of satellites to monitor global shipping traffic.


nanosatellite kickstage

Developed by ISIS, APP and TNO, the Nanosatellite Kick Stage is a solid rocket motor deorbit system for CubeSats. The system has adopted technology applied in European launch vehicle igniters. The propulsive capability is sufficient to lower the perigee of a 3U CubeSat from a 1000km altitude circular orbit in order to comply with the 25 year maximum orbit lifetime.

remove debris

An EU research project to develop and fly an IOD low-cost mission that aims to de-risk and verify technologies needed for future ADR missions. ISIS is in charge of the DebriSat's deployers which are key elements for the success of the mission.

Remove Debris


The INVEST goal is to provide a European-wide programme for enabling a more rapid maturization of European space technologies and components by offering an integrated, multi-platform IOD/IOV community.



The PLUGIN project aims at developing an open standard for hosting innovative technology packages as passenger payloads on-board commercial satellites. It proposes a simple generic approach, including technical interface requirements and implementation schedule.


Asteroid Impact Mission

ISIS is currently investigating how to Deploy Cubesats in orbits around asteroids using very low deployment velocities and we are looking into means to perform battery charging and satellite health checks while in transit to target asteroids.

Asteroid impact mission

SMILE launcher

SMILE is an H2020 project funded by the EC. Several partners are working to develop the system design and technology for a small launch vehicle, with the goal of increasing Europe's independence in access to space, and to meet the demand for launch capacity in the small satellite sector.


Nayif-1 cubesat

Nayif-1 is 1U CubeSat project dedicated to foster knowledge and awareness of space science and technology in UAE. The goal is to teach space system engineering to students with a hands-on approach. Secondly, the satellite embeds different experiments to spark curiosity about space, communication, and physics among students from elementary to university education level.



The main mission objective is to perform photometric measurements during the transit of an exoplanet orbiting around Beta Pictoris. Based on the ISIS avionics and deployable solar panels, the high-performance ADCS from Hyperion Technologies and a custom payload developed by the LESIA, this satellite was launched in 2018.
