Commercial space companies and future explorers will need navigation software, advanced robotic control systems, and new space hardened hardware architecture. Solar System Express (Sol-x) fills that role by designing simple reconfigurable systems. Our embedded systems will increase the safety and productivity of manned space missions, helping make manned space missions more affordable. But every great adventure starts at home. Sol-X will enable space settlement via increased human capability on Earth as our technology solves real world problems with clear space spin-offs.

Solar System Express (Sol-x) technology will be used on Earth first. From teaching and creating educational games for children, to enabling low cost innovation in garages and fueling imagination around the world. The incredible market power of Earth’s numerous developing countries has yet to be tapped. Individually they may be a weak market; however, the vast number of them opens endless possibilities. Sol-X imagines a future where our products help businesses from every nation work and explore in space, and a world that does not define its countries.

  • Where is the CAD model in the GitHub folder? I searched for the SKU and could find it :)

  • Thanks :) But when I click on the 3D square logo on this part (??) it says, “We liked this product so much we modeled it!” Is that a mistake?

  • Can’t find the 3D CAD model at https://github.com/sparkfun/3D_Models/tree/master/Products There should be a batteries folder to match the website, correct?

    “The repo is organized in the same way as the product catalog. If you don’t know where a model goes, look at where the product is on the site.”

  • I love SPAAAAAAAACE too! It’s the reason I founded Solar System Express (Sol-X). SparkFun big wigs said hello to Sol-X representatives at the 2013 Small Sat Conference. Hope to start selling our Gravity Development Board product on SparkFun by Nov 7, 2013 as we are the hardware sponsor for the 2013 SEDS Space Vision conference. DFTBA!
