Realistic Fundraising $$

Realistically – how much cash would you need to get started to at least build some form of a prototype?

I think first of all we need to confirm the features of our satellite. It makes huge effect on costing.
I think a decent camera for earth and space photography is must.
What else we can really do with this tiny satellite?

Hii Steven,

For building a simple complete development of cubesat 2U prototype, we need

  1. OBC (Onboard Computer) - 50$
  2. Arducam (Camera module) - 80$
  3. ADCS (Attitude Determination and Control System) - 130$
  4. Structure/ Integration - 250$
  5. EPS (Electrical Power System) - 90$
  6. Communication system - 80$
  7. PCB’s and other components - 140$
    For this complete assembly it cost around - 820$.

If we can add small controllers like arduino due for testing and some more sensors then it will be closer to 1000$.

If you have any questions regarding 2U design and components used please let me know.

Thank you,
Harsha
