. A small version of NPSCuL called NPSCuL-Lite will house CubeSats in up to 8-1x1x3 ("3U") Poly Pico-satellite Orbital Deployers (P-PODs) developed by the California Polytechnic State University (Cal-Poly). The sequencer's function is to issue commands and drive the circuitry to open the P-PODs in the proper sequence. The sequencer may be mounted either externally from the NPSCuL-Lite or internally. Both a functional flight-similar model, and a mass model of the correct size and CG, are required for future testing.
