Abstract
CU Aerospace, along with the University of Illinois wishes to propose SYNERGEO,a geostationary platform that is assembled from sub-modules by the DARPA Phoenix robot. Each module complies with the DARPA POD standard. With an initial launch of 4 modules, up to three payloads can be supported. With additional core platform modules, the number of unique payloads increases exponentially. Further, the payloads can operate independently from each other, while accessing the same power and transmission source. As all modules can connect anywhere, the platform can be reconfigured to fulfill different mission roles, or even split into sub-platforms as necessary.
