  • Technology demonstration missions
  • Large science missions
  • Commercial missions


With the 12U-Platform you get the perfect match for your mission.

You can:

  • Add large payloads
  • Mix with your own platform subsystems
  • Mix with subsystems from other vendors
  • Use the large size to support very high-power requirements 
  • Integrate Optical downlinks or payloads
  • Use secondary structures for pre-assemble and test of payloads
