CubeSat Research and Development

Welcome

The purpose of this website is to document as much information as I can find regarding building a CubeSat.
I first discovered CubeSats late in 2018 and since then have been fascinated (obsessed) with them. As an engineer and teacher, I would dearly love to get students involved with building one and running space experiments. With that in mind I have begun researching what is involved to achieve this. It appears that there have been lots of CubeSats launched over the years however not a lot of information on their design and the components that were used on these satellites seems available, which is a shame because it means that everyone is reinventing the wheel over and over. As I research CubeSats and find bits of information here and there I am going to document as much as I can about my journey to hopefully help others with the launch of their own CubeSats.

I first became aware of CubeSats after reading this DesignSpark article. This was the spark that ignited my latest obsession. I started researching CubeSats on the internet and found may articles about them but very little information on their design and components used.
