Set to be Launched in Q4 of 2020 on-board of the maiden flight of VEGA-C, ALPHA is an Italian collaborative mission involving a 1U CubeSat were Start Ups and Companies comes together in order to demonstrate innovative technologies in a Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). Spacemind is responsible for bus procurement and AIT.

SM Structures is the family of CubeSat structures designed to offer a valid solution to satellite developers. Based on the key concept of flexibility, SM structure is designed to be free from the constraints of using specific commercial component. The solution covers from 1U to 12U Cubesat platforms satisfying all the necessity of the customer.

The product is based on the concept of a high customization range available to the customer, starting from the standard version. The aim is to provide the customer with a "tuned" solution to exploit all the margins for optimization of spaces, volumes and masses, available on the satellite and permit the integration of each of commercial hardware chosen.

Q- Quad Aperture


Quad aperture layout is the standard layout of SM12 end-frames presenting 4x  83x90 mm aperture. 

C- Central Aperture


Suitable solution for  centered axial aligned payload such optics and propulsion system thanks to a central 100x100 mm aperture

F- Full Frame Aperture


The solution allowing the maximum flexibility for demanding payload such as large optics thanks to a total clearance of 200x200 mm.

D- Double Aperture


Double aperture layout presenting 2 aperture of 83x210 mm to allow integration of 6U form factor components.
