Research Institution
The objective of this research is the development and demonstration of a small satellite bus that can operate effectively for up to 3 years in any Earth orbital regime and has flexible support for a broad range of payloads. The satellite must package for launch in a volume that is compatible with common rideshare launch such as the EELV Secondary Payload Adapter (ESPA), and provide support for a suitable propulsion system and a government payload.The design seeks to offer considerably more payload mass, power, data storage, agility, and volume available to payload providers, and thus a design that creates the opportunity for more missions to be performed.
