The Canisterized Satellite Dispenser (CSD) is a reliable, testable, and cost-effective deployment mechanism for small secondary or tertiary payloads. It fully encapsulates the payload during launch and thus provides privacy and mission assurance for both the primary payload and launch vehicle.
The CSD is incredibly easy to load, integrate, and operate. With no consumables, ground testing is even easier. The CSD allows users to stow a payload, eject, and re-stow in seconds.
The CSD has the largest internal volume and allows more room for solar panels and other deployables.
With an array of mount points, the CSD allows mounting to any face. This reduces the necessity for heavy interface structures and allows the CSDs to be densely packaged on the launch vehicle.
