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 sub-systems and components. SDL has the expertise and facilities to test components and systems for small satellites up to 25 kg.
