SNAP-1: Launched 2000

The SNAP-1 nanosatellite was designed to develop a modular, multi-mission nanosatellite bus (mass range of 10-10kg), to demonstrate the use of miniature electrical and mechanical COTS product technologies in space, and their use as autonomous robots for observing orbiting spacecraft.

SNAP-1 was designed and built as a low-cost research mission by a joint academic-commercial team at the Surrey Space Centre and at SSTL, funded entirely by SSTL.
