XSAT Mechanical Configuration
The main subsystems of XSAT are ADCS, PSS, X-Band, TT&C, OBDH, and Structure. Besides the subsystems, XSAT is designed to carry one primary payload and three secondary payloads. The primary payload consists of the IRIS EOU and PCU. The two secondary payloads are PPU and GPS DLR. A Deck configuration was employed to package all the subsystems and payloads into the XSAT.
Majority of the electronics for the different subsystems and payloads are housed in trays. These trays are stacked on one another to form a rigid column.
