1U Cubesat Standard (http://cubesat.org)

OSSI's first satellite meets 1U cubesat standard.

Satellite Coordinates System

Looks like we also need to know the satellite coordinate system to communicate with other space engineers.

And compare the ref with Cubesat standard XYZ axes: http://cubesat.org/images/developers/cubesat_standardrev12_1.jpg

The satellite coordinate system is especially used for:

  1. Antenna Placement and Pointing
  2. Attitude Control
  3. Solar Panel Assembly
