The Easy-to-use Payload Interoperable Integration Carrier (EPIIC) is a 1U-12U modular experiment and payload adapter designed around the CubeSat construct, enabling simple, rapid and interchangeable integration onto Flight Opportunities vehicles and lunar landers. The design optimizes mass and volume, and leverages spaceflight-proven hardware.

The low-cost and student-developed Software-Defined Payload Interface (SDPI) leverages prior successful flight engineering experience at UCLA. The key enabling technology is the use of the SmartFusion2 system-on-a-chip which combines a low-power ARM processor with an FPGA, allowing the customer to define the digital and power interfaces via software.
