SPiN 1 (MA61C)

SPiN 1 [Space Products and Innovation]

The SPiN 1, (Space Products and Innovation 1) is an 1U CubeSat standard built by Space Products and Innovation to demonstrate in-orbit reconfiguration and the use of the modular satellite assembly with off-the-shelf components through MA61C (MAGIC, Multipurpose Adapter Generic Interface Connector) universal adapter.

MA61C Is the first satellite subsystem adapter with plug-and-play functionality that allows connecting any satellite subsystem with the main on board computer without installing any additional software or adapting hardware connectors. It adapts and integrates existing standard connectors and software.

SPiN 1 was to be launched in 2022 on the Vigoride 2 tug, later re-manifested on the Shepa-LTC 1 space tug, but had to be moved to a later mission due to a propellant issue of the Sherpa tug.
