Abstract: Development of NanoSatellites has begun with the rise of miniaturisation of electronics. With the advent of small satellites, performing experiments in space has become more feasible and easier. The small size makes it possible to launch multiple satellites in a go. It also results in less utilisation of resources, thus making it feasible for researchers to send small experiments over these satellites, owing to the reduced costs of satellite development. The small size does introduce constraints and challenges like adequate power generation due to reduced surface area, motion control due to small size which makes the process of dampening the rotations slower, fitting experiments in the small volume, among few others. The satellite design standard proposed by us, aims to take care of all the posed challenges and constraints with a robust design, while ensuring feasibility of the same in terms of economic support and easy availability of equipments and facilities.
