This paper deals with the deployable mechanisms of nanosatellite like an antenna, Cubesat deployer. A suitable communication antenna as per the CubeSat standard was considered for QB50. The design and deploying mechanism was modeled. A suitable mechanical design was incorporated to deploy the antennas once in orbit. Also, a CAD model of the Cubesat deployed for the Cubesat as per QB50 standards is modeled by using SOLIDWORKS soft. This CAD model is to be subjected to vibration analysis using
