Demonstrate CubeSat platform technologies.

Description

The primary purpose of this spacecraft is a technology demonstrator. Each SME in the consortium will be responsible for contributing a particular spacecraft subsystem. These systems/subsystems will be integrated into a nanosatellite forming SME-SAT and allow Small to Medium Enterprises to space qualify and characterise their technologies in the environment of space. The particular payloads that will be demonstrated in this project include: High precision ADCS (Surrey), Nano-Control Moment Gyros for agility (Surrey), Gyros (Sensonor), Accelerometers (Sensonor/Theon), Star sensor (ISIS), Failure Detection, Isolation and Recovery (HSS), Power system (SystematIC design, NL), Structures (MPB), Magnetometer (LEMI), GPS (SSBV).
