Paper Abstract

The T-SAT design was developed to meet the need for multifunctional low-cost small satellites for carrying scientific and/or commercial payloads. The basic designs are rugged, simple, and mass-producible, using both commercial and aerospace technology. An overview of the three-axis stabilized T-SATs for use in very low earth orbits, low earth orbits, and geostationary orbits and beyond is presented.
