AmSat - Small Amateur Satellites
http://www.amsat.org/amsat/sats/n7hpr/satsum.html
Most of these things are around 60 kg in mass and around 40 cm on a side, undeployed. The Phase 3D craft is the most ambitious, massing almost a thousand kilos. The Phase 3D uses an electrical ammonia arc-jet system for station-keeping.

SUNSAT
