Twenty engineers from CONIDA (the Peruvian space agency) took a five-week training course in Toulouse, designed jointly by ISAE-SUPAERO and Airbus Defence and Space. The aim? To develop their skills in space systems and space missions. The entire program was placed under the academic responsibility of AnnaFederica Urbano, a teacher-researcher in space systems and launchers at ISAE-SUPAERO.

During the course, which ran from October 9 to November 12, 2023, the engineers from the Peruvian agency CONIDA (Comisión Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo Aeroespacial) took part in a preliminary satellite design project. At the end of these five weeks, they all obtained the Certificate of Advanced Studies awarded by ISAE-SUPAERO.

A highly rewarding tripartite collaboration, a guarantee of future space collaborations

The Peruvian space agency thus benefited from an extremely enriching synergy of industrial and academic expertise. The training course enabled its members to discover the heart of Toulouse’s space ecosystem, visiting Airbus Defence and Space facilities, as well as ISAE-SUPAERO’s space research laboratories and InnovSpace. For example, they discovered the "HyCube" test bench (for Hybrid CubeSat testbench), dedicated to nanosatellite platform projects (read below), which Thibault Gateau, a teacher-researcher at ISAE-SUPAERO, enthusiastically presented to them.

For ISAE-SUPAERO and Airbus Defense and Space, this experience opens up prospects for future collaborations in training of this type for international industrial and institutional customers and partners.

The "HyCube" test bench

The digital twin of the CubeSat "CREME", this space environment emulation bench simulates the operation of a satellite in orbit. On-board cards enable teams and students to work on the satellite’s flight software and payload. In addition, a real control station complying with CCSDS (Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems) standards enables satellite operations to be tested and simulated.
