CubeSats

Why build your SC to the CubeSat standard?

Rapid development cycle – not “career satellites”

Large, open community

Simple specification

Reasonable chance of success (see track record)

Low per-mission costs (though high per-kg costs)

LEO orbits for now, GTO etc. later w/rad-hard.

LEO orbits are a relatively benign environment, therefore COTS components are OK

Now accepted as secondary payload

Current trends in technology (low-power, miniaturization, large feature set) are ideal fit to small spacecraft

No experience required!
