Today it is very difficult to deploy a large number of PocketQubes due to lack of deployment infrastructure, launch opportunities and business case for a launch broker. Alba Orbital has designed various Albapod which are able to deploy upto 96p of PocketQube.

Suitable for 1p, 1.5p, 2p or 3p PocketQube format satellites

10mm envelope for larger deployables and antennas

Compatible with MR-FOD style PocketQubes

Tabbed systems reduce contact points from four to two

Albapod v2 spaceflight proven as part of Alba Cluster 2 (Rocketlab Electron launch vehicle)

Can be integrated onto any launch vehicle

Multiple sizes available

96p variant available for constellation deployment

We are actively working with customers to launch clusters to their mission requirements. Contact us to find out how AlbaPod could be used in your mission.
