Satellite development is not the only solution for an operational or technology demonstration mission in LEO. For many missions, particularly where the primary interest is the data or demonstrating a new operational concept, sensor, or hardware, Hosted payloads on the International Space Station (ISS) can be a viable alternative.
Such an option would reduce overall programmatic costs, reduce risk and complexity by providing power and data as a standard service, schedule assurance. For the past four years, Nanoracks has demonstrated viability with the Nanoracks External Platform. Over the past ten years, Nanoracks has built significant trust and relationships within the ISS program, sending 1000+ payloads to Station, and building an experienced team ready to tackle new programs and your mission!
