E-mail Print

Ten CubeSats are set to launch aboard an Atlas V rocket with the AFSPC-5 primary payload from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on May 20, 2015. The CubeSat payloads have been provided through NASA's Educational Launch of Nanosatellites (ELaNa) program and the NRO's Mission Integration Directorate (MID). Below is information about each CubeSat including tracking information where available and links to developers' websites. For launch status, see Spaceflight Now's mission status page.

The CubeSats are integrated into 8 P-POD deployers which are contained in the NPSCuL built by the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). The NPSCuL together with the 8 P-PODs and 10 CubeSats is referred to as the Unique Lightweight Technology and Research Auxiliary Satellite (ULTRASat), and is attached to the Centaur upper stage's Aft Bulkhead Carrier (ABC). The assembled ULTRASat is shown in the photo below ready for mate to the launch vehicle along with members of the ULTRASat team consisting of NPS, Office of Space Launch (OSL), United Launch Alliance (ULA) and Cal Poly, SLO.
