What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

Our Product 🚀

Our goal is to produce beautifully crafted, strong, functional and customizable CubeSat structures while beating our competitors in every aspect of design and price.  

Pictured above is our Gamma 3U frame manufactured for Queen's University in Kingston, Canada. It has been tested and approved by the Canadian Space Agency at the David Florida Laboratory in Ottawa, Canada where they have tested many satellites including Canada's the RADARSAT series which come in at ~ 2 Billion dollars a piece.

 Pictured above is the CubeSat held in the P-POD for Vibration testing. The wires coming out are accelerometers used for taking frequency information of the frame and sub-components of the CubeSat. The P-POD is rotated to take measurements in the X,Y and Z-Axis. 

 We can provide all test data acquired during testing as further proof of approval from the David Florida Laboratory. 

 Above is an example of the fundamental frequency results in the Z-Axis sine vibration test. 

 Above is a bare bones structure while test fitting some of its sub-components and payload. 

Above is the fully assembled satellite just before the antenna and solar panels were installed for testing. 

Designing 🚀

We have gone through many stages of design and testing to reach our first production model "Gamma" named for its 3U size. 

It is composed of 2 main frame sections with 6 inner ribs pictured above. These can be made from 7075-T6 or 6061-T6 aluminum depending on your preference. 

 We will work with you to design custom mounting brackets for sub-components, solar panels or any payload that you wish to include. What ever your project needs, we can help! 

The complete structure is then sent off to be hard anodized (type III) to prevent cold wending during launch in the deployment P-POD. Anodizing also adds longitivtiy to the structure while in the extreme space environment. 

Rewards 🚀

To get the ball rolling, we are seeking your help! You could help us reach our goals by grabbing some our sweet 3"x3" stickers to put on your laptop. 

 Or one of our sleek T-Shirts. 

Or the main attraction, a CubeSat structure!  These will go up in price after the kickstarter is over, so grab one for cheap!! while you still can.

We are also manufacturing Alpha 1U structures if they fit your project requirements better than our Gamma 3U size. 

We thank you for your support!! and look forward to manufacturing and getting involved with your CubeSat project! 

Risks and challenges

There are of course many risks involved with building satellites. We have put in countless hours to ensure that our product meets all the requirements set forth by California Polytechnic State University, the CSA as well as NASA. Our structures meet all measurement tolerances, safety factors and material requirements to ensure that you will receive a superior product that you can trust and depend on.
