CubeSats are a class of research spacecraft called nanosatellites. The cube-shaped satellites are spacecraft size in units or U’s (a unit is defined as a volume of about 10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm and typically weigh less than 1.33 kg), typically up to 2U (20cm×10cm×10cm), to 12U (20cm×20cm×30cm). Practical application of CubeSat technology was selected in Science as the top ten technology progress in the year of 2014. The theme of this contest is "CubeSat, platform of innovation space mission" The contest will set prizes including the first prize, the second prize, and the third prize. There will be a free launch opportunity of 3U CubeSat or 1U payload capacity for the winner (provided by Expace Technology Co., Ltd.)
