The X-ray Star Scanner will find users outside of NASA in the smallsat and CubeSat communities in general, but more specifically, with organizations such as the Air Force Robotics Laboratory and the National Reconnaissance Office. As the CubeSat concept becomes more accepted, the potential uses for, and users of, the XSS will grow. For example, AFRL has been developing a 6U size "Cubesat" that could be used as the basis for a spin-stabilized spacecraft. There are several obvious DoD applications for precision spin stabilized spacecraft, including electronic intelligence, space weather observations, rapid responsive space communications satellites and earth observing spacecraft in Thompson Spinner configurations, in which the spacecraft spin axis is aligned with the orbit normal. This allows a simple linear array to be swept over the Earth, imaging a swath of the Earth's surface as the spacecraft orbits. These spacecraft could produce detailed multispectral images of the Earth's surface on a recurring basis, with image registration on the order of 100 m from an altitude of 400 km, all in a compact CubeSat form factor and capable of quick turn-around and launch on an as-needed basis. The X-ray Star Scanner will provide a precision attitude reference for spin-stabilized spacecraft with a design targeting CubeSat class spacecraft. However, this attitude sensor will be useful to any spin-stabilize spacecraft requiring arcminute level attitude determination accuracy such that the X-ray Star Scanner will be useful on other small spacecraft platforms being developed at NASA. This instrument will enable new missions by providing arcminute level point accuracies for spacecraft supporting key NASA missions such as: Earth mapping and observing missions; solar and astronomical observatories; space weather missions; and planetary, lunar and asteroid mapping and observing missions. Finally, the instrument developed for the XSS can be used as the basis for the development of an X-ray Navigation (XNAV) instrument. The XSS will have at least 50 cm2 of collecting area, a collimator and hardware for the collection and time-tagging of photons from the instrument. While an XNAV instrument will likely require more collecting area, higher precision photon time-tagging and different navigation algorithms, the XSS hardware represents a good starting point for the development of the XNAV instrument.
