Abstract

In recent decays university class small satellites are creating many opportunities for space research and professional trainings while at the same time responding to constrained budgets. In this work the main focus is on developing a simple and rapid structural sizing tool considering the main objectives of a low cost university class microsatellite project. In satellite projects, structure subsystem is one of the influential subsystems as a driver of the cost and acceptance of the final design. At the first steps of such projects there is no confirmed data regarding the launch vehicle or even in some cases there is no data for the satellite payload. Due to these facts, developing simple sizing tools at conceptual design phase for obtaining an over view of the effect of different variables is useful before entering complex calculations in detailed design phases. In this study, after developing a simple analytical model of satellite structure subsystem, a design space is evaluated with practical boundaries considering mass and dimensions constraints of such projects. The results are useful to give initial insight to establish the system level structural sizing
