NEMO, DEFIANT and NAUTILUS are our primary microsatellite platforms:
NEMO is a workhorse platform that has been used to develop many successful operational missions. Able to carry up to 12 kg and compatible with the SFL XPOD deployer, NEMO is designed to accommodate pre-deployed appendages, such as solar panels and antennas. Pre-deploying equipment in this way before launch reduces mission risk – an advantage of the XPOD over standard CubeSat dispensers.
DEFIANT is our most popular mid-size microsatellite platform offering a balance between minimizing launch cost while having ample room for payloads up to 30 kg for more demanding missions. This platform is ideally suited for missions requiring compact design without sacrificing performance and scalability.
NAUTILUS is a larger microsatellite geared towards larger payloads up to 90 kg such as optical instruments for high-resolution and/or multispectral Earth imaging.
