In April 2021, we established a new factory that is ten times larger than the old one with 2202 square meters. The new factory is built with the purpose to develop, test, and manufacture satellite components and power systems for actual operations used in-house and for potential space customers. The medium-sized factory is divided into six areas including Power System with a Chemical Laboratory, Office, Robotics, Satellite with a Clean Room, Data Room, and Workshop area.

Satellite

 

Mu Space Factory 1 offers our team a more comprehensive platform for both development and production of mechanical and electrical satellite components. It houses a large enough cleanroom for our team to build and test many components, which up to 10 satellites can be manufactured simultaneously.

The manufacturing platform for satellite systems and components will be at Factory 1. We aim to fabricate multiple kinds of parts; structures, mechanisms, attitude sensors and actuators, solar panels, battery assemblies, power control electronics, antennas, transceivers, thermal coating, and many more.

Since vertical integration is the development goal for our team, we are constantly engaging in rapid prototyping each of the components to find the optimal designs. Functionality tests will be necessary for our team to improve significantly in each iteration. We are inserting many test apparatus; including, but not limited to, deployment testing, attitude sensor testing, attitude control testing, power electronics testing, electromagnetic testing, flight software testing, and thermal properties testing.

Power Systems

 

Previously, at Factory 0, we would use readily accessible COTS parts to assemble a battery pack according to each design. However at Factory 1, we develop more in-depth power systems as well as delve into developing each component individually then assemble them into a battery pack. We also perform research on battery cells and manufacture them in-house in the power systems laboratory. The battery management system (BMS) which represents the brain of the battery pack is developed in the factory’s electronics area.

Robots

 

Larger space for development, integration and testing will be extremely helpful for our robotics endeavours. At Factory 1, we showcase our robot in action. This is where you will be able to see robots deliver parts and tools from storage shelves to workshop desks to assist our engineers to build exciting products. Moreover, all of the robots in this factory will be controlled by a central artificial intelligence. We also perform advanced research and development on future variants of our robot which will be utilized not only on earth but also on the moon, Mars and beyond.

Factory 1 is special for our development efforts and it not only hosts our robot team but also the backbone of our AI and Computing team which provides computation power to every edge device. This signifies the brain of our operations.

Workshop area

A workshop area consists of heavy machinery and a storage room with the purpose for steel welding or lathing.
