UKube-1 is a UK designed and built cubesat (30x10x10 cm), funded by UKSA and built by Clyde Space. The on-board payloads are a variety of technology testbeds from collaborators in industry and academia to demonstrate their feasibility in space in a cost-efficient manner. It’s small enough to piggy-back on other satellites for launch.
The animation highlights the modular nature of the cubesat platform, and shows the variety of science and technology that can be achieved in such a small package.
