Chameleon 6U to 27U Open, Modular, Scalable and Reconfigurable (OMSR) Bus are engineered to the highest military standards (MIL-STD) for command, data handling, telemetry, tracking and control.  Chameleon 6U to 27U OMSR features and automatic deployable solar panel array system for complex DOD, NASA and Commercial nano-satellite and micro-satellite missions.

Chameleon MIL-STD 6U to 27U nano/micro satellites use GPS L1/L2 receiver and Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS) to provide precise satellite ephemeris data and Nadir attitude pointing (< .1 degrees) to be used to support various DoD, NASA and Commercial missions.

Chameleon 6U to 27U OMSR Bus can be used to support a disaggregation architecture to reduced cost for the following advanced DOD missions: Position Navigation Tracking, Space Situational Awareness, Space Weather Monitoring, Protected, Tactical Communications, Offensive Space Control, Unprotected Communications, Space to Impervious Surface Ratio (ISR), Terrestrial Environmental Monitoring and Nuclear Detonation Detection.

Chameleon 6U to 27U OMSR Bus architecture that simplifies payload integration and easily adapts to new user requirements.
