ORION: A Small, Full Capability, General Purpose, Low Earth Orbit Satellite Bus
MetadataShow full item record
A low cost general purpose satellite bus has been designed to support a wide variety of small scientific and commercial payloads. The design provides a number of launch options, including the new NASA extended Get-Away-special (GAS) canister and several small expendable launch vehicles. The satellite is 48 cm. (19 in.) in diameter, 89 cm. (35 in.) high and weighs approximately 123 kg. (270 Ibs.). The satellite bus provides telemetry, attitude control, orbital boost/station keeping, electrical power, microprocessor and data storage for up to 23 kg. (50 lbs.) of user payload.
