CubeSat Structural Frame

CubeSat Structural Frame

NanoAvionics CubeSat Standard Structure has been developed as a generic, modular nanosatellite structure compliant with the CubeSat Design Specification. The design created allows CubeSat developers a high level of freedom in their spacecraft configuration. The framework is made from aluminum 7075-T7351, which assures rigidity, lightweight, and durability. Frames have a modular internal layout, compatible with PC/104 stacks. Stacks are mounted on standard mounting rings and can be oriented in any of the three main axes.
