any1: NASA is not specific on date only says in early 2013. An additional nugget from NASA: the total cost of the components to build each of the three prototype satellites was kept to $3,500 by using only COTS hardware and keeping the design and mission objectives to a minimum for the first flight.

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
