The ISIS 1-Unit CubeSat structure is developed as a generic, modular satellite structure based upon the CubeSat standard. The design created by ISIS allows for multiple mounting configurations, giving CubeSat developers maximum flexibility in their design process. The stack of PCBs and other flight modules can be built up first in the secondary structure and integrated with the load-carrying frames at the end of the process, ensuring accessibility of the flight avionics. In addition, the use of a load-carrying frame and detachable shear panels allows access to all parts of the spacecraft avionics. By removing one or more of the shear panels, access is possible, even after final integration. The modular chassis allows for one 1-Unit stack of PCBs, or other modules, to be mounted inside the chassis.
