NanoRacks Completes Historic Third Round of ISS CubeSat Deployments
by Staff Writers
Houston TX (SPX) Mar 11, 2015


The NanoRacks CubeSat Deployer (NRCSD) began deployments in January 2014.

NanoRacks is pleased to announce the successful completion of it's third full round of CubeSat deployments from the International Space Station.

Deployed from the NanoRacks CubeSat Deployer were 16 CubeSats since the February 27, 2015 deployment window opened. Included were 12 Planet Labs Doves (10 Flock-1B, 2 Flock-1D'), Spaceflight Services and MIT's MicroMAS, San Jose University and Greece's LambdaSat, NASA Ames' TechEdSat-4, and the GEARRSat CubeSat.

"We are delighted to show once again that the International Space Station is an ideal deployment platform for satellites," said NanoRacks CEO Jeffrey Manber. "And we thank our friends at NASA and JAXA for working to make this program a reality."

The latest deployment cycle was made possible only by a historic on-orbit repair of hardware that had earlier not performed. It involved close coordination between the NanoRacks team and officials from the ISS space agencies.

The NanoRacks CubeSat Deployer (NRCSD) began deployments in January 2014. In just 13 months, NanoRacks has established itself as the 'go-to CubeSat' company. As the market leader, NanoRacks has deployed 61 CubeSats, with over 170 in the future pipeline. NanoRacks shows everyday that the promise of ISS utilization is being realized now.

NanoRacks External Payloads Manager, Kirk Woellert, added: "We are beyond thrilled to see the NRCSD back in action after on-orbit repairs. Every single CubeSat from this round of deployments has made contact with ground control, and we are celebrating side by side with our customers."

NanoRacks Chief Technology Officer Michael D. Johnson concludes that "Space is now more agile, affordable, accessible, and we are using innovative technology to make efficient ISS services."

CubeSats offered deep-space ride on ESA asteroid probe
Paris (ESA) Feb 27, 2015
Think of it as the ultimate hitchhiking opportunity: ESA is offering CubeSats a ride to a pair of asteroids in deep space. CubeSats are among the smallest types of satellites: formed in standard cubic units of 10 cm per side, they provide affordable access to space for small companies, research institutes and universities. One-, two- or three-unit CubeSats are already being flown. Teams of ... read more
