Executive Summary - Final

The output of the activity should show the necessary engineering changes to an existing CubeSat deployer to meet AIM mission and system requirements and prepare an appropriate interface definition for accommodation on the AIM spacecraft including among others:

  • - Identification of the requirements for a LV-POD in an interplanetary environment, first addressing the needs of AIM and extending to generic interplanetary missions.

  • - Review of technology to extend existing CubeSat deployment systems and identification of their limitations.

  • - Design the concept of the LV-POD and assess its feasibility.
