Award Amount: $2,605,510.00
 

Abstract:

This effort will develop a universal launch system for use on launch vehicles specific to ORS needs. The system will include a payload adapter that provides standardized interfaces for the equivalent of eight (8) 3U CubeSat dispensers. In addition, the system will afford the ability to launch payloads requiring dispenser volumes in excess of the current 3U standard in conjunction with a primary payload. BENEFIT: The proposed effort will have a significant impact to both the ORS Office and the small satellite community as a whole. The obvious benefit to ORS of allowing modular, quick, and affordable launch of larger CubeSat satellites will be of great interest to other government, educational, and commercial entities.
