Cubical Tokyo Tech Engineering Satellite-1.7

The nanosatellite features a number of improvements based on experiences gained from its predecessor model, CUTE-1.7+APD. In particular, the spacecraft structure was redesigned to increase the solar cell surface area for enhanced power generation.

The CUTE-1.7+APD-2 nanosatellite has dimensions of 220 mm x 180 mm x 115 mm and a total mass of ~ 3 kg. The structural change made to this (larger than standard) spacecraft model provided simply more freedom to handle things and contributed to the assembly and integration functions.
