You are looking for qbee – our most versatile nanosatellite configuration.


What’s next?

Step 1 – we send you qbkit – an affordable yet functional nanosatellite platform for your integration purposes.

Step 2 – you integrate your payload physically and you plan your mission with qbapp. All planning and integration progress is usable for your real space mission.

Step 3 – confirm your launch slot. We offer a variety of choices depending on size, orbit, urgency and budget.

Step 4 – send us back the qbkit with your payload. We will take it from here. We will re-integrate your payload into the space-grade equivalent of qbkit – the qbee and place your nanosatellite into a deployer, which again is integrated into the rocket you picked.

Step 5 – once in orbit, we will be able to retrieve your data from your satellite. You will have full access to your qbee via qbapp, which is connected to Open Cosmos’ ground station network.


You only pay for each step that you require. Start your mission now with step 1 – purchasing qbkit:
