The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) CubeSat Launcher (NPSCuL), pronounced "NPS cool") is a high-capacity CubeSat launcher designed to work with US evolved expendable launch vehicles (EELV). NPSCuL is an adapter that can attach multiple California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) Pico-satellite Orbital Deployers (P-POD) to a single EELV Secondary Payload Adapter (ESPA) slot. NPSCuL is a simple and inexpensive adapter that should allow these proven technologies to be used jointly, thereby facilitating high-capacity US based CubeSat launches on US Government, Department of Defense (DoD), and Commercial ESPA compatible launch vehicles.
