MA61C

SpaceTech Engineering Hardware Aerospace

Project description

Inefficient designs, long lead times, and incompatible components restrict access to space for incumbent and new satellite manufacturers alike. SPiN’s universal adapter, MA61C, transforms incompatible off-the-shelf components to plug-and-play, reducing design costs by 50%, production costs by 30%, and integration time by a year. By providing a compact and low-cost solution, SPiN democratizes access to space and empowers satellite manufacturers to spend high-value time and money where it counts: pursuing new ventures.

Issue addressed by the project

Satellite system manufacturing process is expensive and time-consuming due to the uniqueness of each of the sub- system. During satellite manufacturing, each sub-system requires adaptation before assembling to the spacecraft. This translates to high mission cost and a multi-year project.
