1. MarCO carries a miniature wide-angle camera that is used to verify deployments and to capture outreach images.

2. Each MarCO carries a softball-sized radio used to communicate with the ground using X-band,

3. to receive data from InSight using UHF, and to collect tracking measurements for navigation

4. On board the two CubeSats is an ultra-high frequency (UHF) antenna with circular polarization. EDL information from InSight was transmitted through the UHF band at 8 kbit/s to the CubeSats, and was simultaneously retransmitted at an X band frequency at 8 kbit/s to Earth.[21] MarCO used a deployable solar panel for power, but because of the limitations in solar panel efficiency, the power for the X-band frequency can only be about 5 watts.

5. antenna, avionics to control the satellite, a propulsion system, power, and payload

6. developed the CubeSat specifications

7. In 1999, California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly)

8. 10 cm × 10 cm × 11.35 cm (~ 4 in × 4 in × 4.5

9. celulas fotovoltaicas hold the payload - the camera they send to space little kill swtiches dock wich holds a computer radio power supply battery like things which holds the power roll of connector which will go to the phone to take take cells photocells

10. Satélite prático de tamanho reduzido
