Any true citizen of a country must rejoice on their achievements. But our neighbors are overdoing it.

Here are a few facts of their satellite orbiting the moon.

Nanosatellites cost a fraction of conventional satellites. Conventional satellites can cost well over US$500 million, whereas a nanosatellite (ICUBE-QAMAR) can cost one-thousandth of that to build and launch into orbit.

Access to components and software can lower than cost even further, making nanosatellites the ideal spacecraft of choice for certain private entities

Since nanosatellites make use of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) parts, it follows that a COTS software solution would be equally as useful. Innovative solutions, such as Flight Software Development Kits, allow for nanosatellite flight software that can be configured according to the needs of a mission using pre-validated components.

This ultimately means that a nanosatellite can be put together with readily available parts, both physical and virtual, reducing the time and complexity of development and getting the final stages of a project on track faster and more reliably.
