IDEASSat (Ionosphere Dynamics Exploration and Attitude Subsystem Satellite) is a CubeSat mission developed by National Central University, Taiwan. It collaborates with partners in the INSPIRE consortium and will be launched in Summer 2020. The dimension of IDEASSat shall be a 3U (30 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm) CubeSat, conforming to CalPoly CubeSat Design Specifications. The structure shall provide the required support, alignment, and stiffness required by all spacecraft components and subsystems during integration, transport, launch, deployment, and nominal operation. In this presentation, the structural requirements of CubeSat deployer for IDEASSat will be present. Besides, we will demonstrate the assembly process of the entire satellite and composition of materials from the architecture to each subsystem, and show the validation results from quasi static, modal, shock and random vibration and thermal control analysis.
