Abstract:
    An Educational Nanosatellite following cubesat standards and aiming to be Pakistan's second Cubesat.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Cubesats have seen a rapid growth since being introduced with about 1220(www.nanosats.eu) launched till date. Pakistan is far behind the world in this domain, and their is an endless untapped potential in the fields of remote-sensing and Real Time Earth Observation.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   It will be an educational satellite providing insight at a university level. Its offshoots can be easily used in the fields of remote sensing and surveillance by the military.
How will the solution works
    We will be designing an educational nanosatellite of cubesat standard complete with payload, internal subsystems(Attitude Determination and control system, Onboard Data Handling, Electric Power System, Structural System and Communication system). We will be following standard system design procedures and use Space tested systems.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Institute of Space Technology Islamabad already launched Pakistan's first ever Cubesat(ICUBE-1) in 2013, but it failed to achieve its required objectives. IST is now pursuing a 3-U satellite named ICUBE-2 . Our Cubesat will be of 1-U configuration catering ICUBE-1's shortcomings.
