Currently, CubeSats don't have much wider use of Operating Systems (OS) which, in theory, could reduce the time taken for the development of CubeSat. If there would have been a CubeSat OS, the success rate of the University CubeSat Mission would increase, as there would be more time available to test the hardware to increase the mission success rate. Antarikchya Pratisthan Nepal, is trying to develop such software that would be easy to use while reducing the time it takes to design CubeSats. For this first step, PX4 Autopilot is being integrated as a mission, which is to be placed as one of the payloads aboard the 3U CubeSat and launched. This mission is to test how the PX4 and its constituents behave in a radiation-prone, vacuum space environment. The initial test hardware is based on the Pixracer v1.0 flight controller board, which was also used in past CanSat training here in Nepal. After a successful Initial test and once enough data are collected the team will be moving forward with developing an airframe similar to is done for drones. This allows for the utilization of COTS drone components to design and fabricate a CubeSat while reducing the complexity and allowing more time for extensive testing of the system.
