Abstract
An effort is underway at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) to leverage its unique position as both a military research institution and a graduate university interested in educational outreach. We are working to simultaneously incorporate the use of CubeSats into our educational and space research program and to enable the access of other student-built CubeSats to DoD launches. To launch CubeSats, NPS is designing a CubeSat launcher compatible with the ESPA (EELV Secondary Payload Adaptor) interface. Through partnerships with universities and other DoD collaborators, NPS is seeking to maximize the potential for launching CubeSat payloads.
