This project studies the process of industrial dismemberment of a research project developed in the area of picosatellites at ITA. Since early 2010, the class of aerospace engineering at ITA has been devoted to designing a CubeSat and pretend to launch it at the end of 2012. Parallel to this project, it is interesting to do a market and industrialization research of these small space satellites sector intending to design a company that can contribute to technological sovereignty of Brazil. This introductory scientific research is therefore a first approach to this study.
