The success of space technology evolves according to<br />the technological progression in terms of density of CMOS<br />integration (Complementary on - Silicon Metal) and MEMS<br />(Micro-Electro-Mechanical System) [4]. The need of spatial<br />services has been a significant growth due to several factors such<br />as population increases, telecommunication applications, climate<br />changes, earth control and observation military goals, and so on.<br />To cover this, spatial vehicle generations, specific calculators and<br />Femto-cell systems have been developed. More recently, Ultra -<br />Small Satellites (USS) have been proposed and different<br />approaches, concerning developing of these kind of spatial systems,<br />have been presented in literature. This miniature satellite is<br />capable to fly in the space and to provide different services such as<br />imagery, measures and communications [4, 9, 10]. This paper deals<br />with the study of two different USS Femto-satellite architectures<br />that exist in literature in order to propose a future architecture that<br />can provide an optimization of power supply consumption and<br />ameliorate service communication quality.
