Abstract: The Canadian Nanosatellite Advanced Propulsion System is the second generation cold-gas propulsion system. Its purpose is to provide the millinewton thrust required for formation control of nanosatellites, in particular the CanX-4/-5 formation flying mission. Additionally, to inject nanosatellites into orbit, a reliable and robust deployer is needed to bridge the gap between the launch vehicle and space. This bridge is the XPOD, the eXoadaptable PyrOless Deployer. Both of these technologies are designed and developed by the Space Flight Lab. This thesis describes the assembly, integration and preliminary testing of the CanX-4/-5 propulsion system. Emphasis is placed on the phases involved with the assembly and integration while highlighting the problems encountered and lessons learned. In addition, the mechanical analysis of the XPOD as well as its assembly and testing is described in detail.
