CubeSat - small size (midget) artificial earth satellites used for space exploration which have a volume of 1 liter and a weight of not more than 1.33 kg or (multiple) more. The term «CubeSat» is designated nanosatellites (Nano-satellite), built under the direction of Professor Bob Twiggs (Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Stanford). Satellites have a 10x10x10 cm size and launched using Poly-PicoSatellite Orbital Deployer (P-POD). The standard allows the union of 2 or 3standard cubes consisting of one satellite (denoted by 2U and 3U and have 10x10x20 or 10x10x30 cm size). One P-POD has dimensions sufficient to run three satellites 10x10x10 cm or less, the overall size of not more than 3U.
- Creation of a modern compact-class unified electronic platform 'nanosatellite "for space research, development of new design and technological solutions;
- Сreation of a ground control station antennas transmit and receive signals at the center of management of small spacecraft.
- Сreation, research and testing in space perspective electronic platform for scientific experiments, new devices, new equipment and materials, including carbon fiber honeycombs created in NTU "KPI";
- Сreation and development of radio communication systems for future nanosatellites;
- Сreation and development of a solar sensor for small spacecraft.
- Specialists training in the area of small satellites and systems to ensure their functioning, management, transmission and processing of data;
- Creation of a modern laboratory facilities (both ground and space segments) for the training of specialists for the space industry of Ukraine.
