Opening up Space with Opensource: A Modular, Opensource Cubesat Structure

Hear the story of UVic satellite Design's struggle with planning, designing, and integrating the Homathko Satellite in time for the Canadian Satellite Design challenge, and the innovations which were born of this struggle, namely, a modular cubesatellite structure and bus which are soon to be open sourced.

Cubesatellite structures are often built specifically for the payload they will be carrying. This attempt to optimize space in the satellite often leads to reduced accessibility of the bus during the prototyping, testing, and integration stages of the spacecraft's development. A new structure was designed with the purpose of being used for multiple missions regardless of their payload, increasing the accessibility of internal components, and greater ease of subsystem integration.
