Design Documents for CubeSats

Post by admin_Sam »

One of the reasons CubeSats have reduced the barrier to entry is that the standardization of the structure made it easier for launch providers to integrate them as secondary payloads.

Here are some documents that help you understand what the size the structures are and what tolerances they need to achieve. The latter is a huge cost and time driver!

1U CubeSat Design Spec: https://www.cubesat.org/s/cds_rev13_final2.pdf
6U CubeSat Design Spec:https://www.cubesat.org/s/6U_CDS_2018-06-07_rev_10.pdf
CubeSat Spec Drawings: https://www.cubesat.org/s/spec_dwgs_rev13cds.pdf
P-POD User's Guide: https://www.cubesat.org/s/P-POD_MkIIIRe ... 1_Rev1.pdf

Are there any documents that you think would be handy for developers?
