Abstract

CubeSat and Small satellites are one of the fastest growing areas of space development in recent years. In this paper, we present a development methodology fora high performance, high reliability, lower power, highly customisable CubeSat controller module. Our proposed controller will significantly reduce the time to market and be suitable for use in other classes of nano/microsatellites. To the best of our knowledge, no such capability exists, although some companies in Europe and USA offer lower performance modules, which constrain the user with a partial solution and more difficult programming and development environment.
