Satellite pyrotechnics

From the same pyrotechnic hardware developed for launchers, Dassault Aviation has been proposing its ITAR free pyrotechnics for satellites and space probes. These devices perform a great number of functions such as: deployment of solar panels and antennas, apogee motor ignition, and unlocking of mechanisms.

Dassault Aviation designed and built the ASAP (Ariane Structure for Auxiliary Payloads). This structure, used for 100-150 kg micro-satellites launched as auxiliary payloads, includes pyrotechnic devices that separate and distance the satellite from the launcher.
