Fundraising

1U CubeSats (1 liter volume, 1 kg mass) are relatively small – only ca. 30% of the mass and volume are available for an internal payload. Such spacecraft are constrained to one or maybe two payloads / experiments.

Therefore it’s harder to attract multiple partners to join you in the development of a 1U CubeSat.

1U CubeSats are great starter spacecraft – they lay the foundation (construction, operation, technology) for later, more sophisticated missions.

Nevertheless, when designing your 1U CubeSat you should strive to be as efficient as possible (space- and volume-wise) so as to be able to attract other parties to aid in funding by carrying their payload, too.
