Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (AMT): Modular Rapidly Manufactured SmallSat

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Utilize advanced manufacturing processes to design and fabricate a fully functional prototype flight model, with the goal of demonstrating rapid on-orbit assembly of a modular Small Satellite.

Rapidly fabricated, modular and integrated small satellite subsystems will be developed from digital fabrication workflows. The following are planned modular components: Cube Satellite structure using state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing technologies, techniques, and materials Modular "Digital Material" technology for spacecraft subsystems and components to maximize payload volume Modular computing architecture to be used with Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) microcontrollers Digital repository of widely accessible, easy to replicate and modify satellite components
