Cockpit

Cockpit is Loft Orbital’s mission control software. It supports any combination of ground infrastructures, payloads, satellite buses, orbits, and mission parameters. Reconfigurable for a new mission within days, it provides users with an intuitive UI to easily monitor and command their missions.

Products

  • Payload Hub

    Payload and instrument agnostic interface, enabling rapid integration of payloads without placing limitations on their development. The Payload Hub has two main components: a mechanical and thermal structure that host the payloads, and a control unit that manages software, data and resources among payloads. Additional modules can be added to augment onboard capabilities and make the most of a mission.

Presentation

Loft Orbital is a provider of space “Missions as-a-Service”.

Founded in 2017 at the heart of the Silicon Valley, Loft Orbital integrates, launches, and operates high-reliability and high-performance spacecraft. Loft Orbital’s approach is centered on enabling standardization to deliver reliable space missions with improved cost and schedule performance.

Loft Orbital’s spacecraft are typically configured as “rideshares”, meaning that multiple customers share the onboard resources of a 100-kg class microsatellite platform.

Loft Orbital is developing the interface technologies, which are both software and hardware, and is thus the first company in the space sector that marry tech and space domains. The French subsidiary, based in Toulouse, focuses on the R&D activities for the development of these technologies.

What they are looking for

Loft Orbital is growing his core team of developers for multiple lines of software products.

These products will enable clients to have full autonomy on the management of their mission, it will help the engineers to optimize the integration phases of the satellite (prior the launch) and to have an internal tool that gather all the data related to a mission (the Space GitHub, kinda).

Loft Orbital is looking for bright, talented and passionate people that come from the tech sector and that will bring their knowledge and creativity into the space domain.

Good to know

Loft Orbital is an international company with a multicultural team that comes from different backgrounds: this diversity is part of the core values of Loft.
