CubeSat standard enables the capability to create miniaturized satellites with mass of 1–3 kg for a short time span (1–2 years) and rather small financial resources. CubeSats are being developed in tens educational centers and innovative companies worldwide. Most of similar satellites are developed in the educational purposes, however their scope extends constantly. Fast development of element base gives hope for possible commercial application of these satellites within the proximal decade. Development of similar satellites is especially actual in Ukraine which has a large potential in the field of satellite launches. This would allow one to realize space exploration at rather small costs in intervals between implementation of large projects.
