Small Satellite Test & Characterization

Nanosats and CubeSats are proving to be a strong and viable solution for science missions. As components become smaller, more intricate, and lighter, there is an ever-increasing need for the ability to test and characterize miniaturized subsystems and components. SDL has the expertise and facilities to test components and systems for small satellites up to 25 kg.
