DcubeD Adds Deployable Mechanisms to SmallSat Catalog

Release actuators and deployable mechanisms from DcubeD

Actuators and first deployable mechanisms from DcubeD now available through the SmallSat Catalog

Chicago, Illinois – June 15, 2021 – Deployables Cubed GmbH (DcubeD), a NewSpace SmallSat deployable mechanisms company, is making its release actuators and other deployable mechanisms available through the Orbital Transports SmallSat Catalog. DcubeD develops miniature actuators and deployables specifically designed and developed for SmallSat and NanoSat customers.

DcubeD’s mD3PP, nD3PP, and nD3RN resettable release actuators can be used to trigger deployable satellite structures, release a satellite from a CubeSat dispenser, or as a hold-down release mechanism for spacecraft/payload separation, to name just a few applications. The D3S3 space selfie stick puts a camera at the end of a self-extending boom, enabling high-quality promotional images of a satellite to be obtained directly from space and for monitoring of a satellite’s health without relying on on-board sensors.

“We are stoked to have our DcubeD NewSpace release mechanisms and deployables available on the Orbital Transports SmallSat Catalog,” said Dr. Thomas Sinn, CEO of DcubeD (Deployables Cubed GmbH). “Truly, space logistics made easy. More great things to come. We are looking forward to a close partnership with the team at Orbital Transports."

“We are proud to include DcubeD’s pin puller, release nut, and space selfie stick products in the SmallSat Catalog,” said David Hurst, CEO of Orbital Transports said, “Making these deployables available in the SmallSat Catalog will accelerate the utilization of space through the creation of innovative and user-friendly technologies.”
