16U CubeSat / Nanosatellite M16P

NanoAvionics’ M16P 16U CubeSat has been a catalyst for many Earth observation companies, including Sen’s mission to stream 4K video of Earth from space, Satlantis’ multiple meter-class resolution Earth observation, and greenhouse gas monitoring spacecraft, among others.

Furthermore, the payload volume of our 16U CubeSats, modular subsystems, and deployable solar panels for increased power generation coupled with our precise ADCS system and algorithms have proven M16P suitable for many applications in national security, communications, or even quantum key distribution.

Whether you’re a space inventor or seeking a turnkey solution, NanoAvionics can provide systems engineering, electrical, and mechanical support for payload development or supply an entire satellite integrated with our partners’ remote sensing or software-defined radio payloads that take advantage of the payload capacity offered by our 16U small satellite buses.
