SM Cubesat Structures

Flexible and universal Cubesat structure


SM Structure 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 6U 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. 

  • SM01   
  • SM02
  • SM03                                              
  • SM06

 SM Structure is designed to facilitate integration and to eliminate the most of components constraints. The availability of multiple deployment switches permits the inhibition of many independent subsystem within the P-POD according to the requirements of different launch operators.

SM Integration tools


Integration tools and supporting equipment are fundamental to correctly manipulate and position the satellite during integration, easing the operations and avoiding direct manipulations that might lead to undesired damages. SM Integration tools can be exploited in multiple configuration thanks to SM Vertical Stand, SM Horizontal Stand and SM fastening jig.
