The new specification currently governs CubeSats larger than the 3U size. This includes deployer systems which are referred to as CSDs (Canisterized Satellite Dispensers) with the following physical parameter: • 6U (mass of 12 kg, size of 12 cm x 24 cm x 36 cm) • 12U (mass of 24 kg, size of 23 cm x 24 cm x 36 cm)What are CubeSats and how do they work?
CubeSats are a class of research spacecraft called nanosatellites. CubeSats are built to standard dimensions (Units or “U”) of 10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm. They can be 1U, 2U, 3U, or 6U in size, and typically weigh less than 1.33 kg (3 lbs) per U. NASA's CubeSats are deployed from a Poly-Picosatellite Orbital Deployer, or P-POD.What is the Mass Properties Report for CubeSats?
The mass properties report identifies the CubeSat’s total mass, center of grav- ity (CG), moments of inertia (MOIs), and products of inertia (POI) relative to each axis. The first draft of this report will be among the first deliverables due.
