We have begun a feasibility study to build a small satellite in the 3 kg mass range (nanosatellite), funded by NASDA. This scale of satellite is a challenging target for nanosatellite development. In this study, we plan to build several key technologies such as small reaction wheel, small electric propulsion, docking mechanism, electrical recharging devices and software for three axis attitude control by using image processing. Future space experiments are also proposed
