The experiment will provide an understanding of internal dynamic interactions in microgravity. The two flights will record NLV CD (Nano-Launch Vehicle CubeSat Deployer) interactions and deployment and then P-POD (Poly-Picostatellite Orbital Deployer) and NLV CD systems. The deployment dynamics have never been accurately characterized in an operational environment. Possible benefits are to NASA LSP, ARC, JPL, GSFC, US Army, and DARPA.More »
