                         opportunities have appeared to develop and launch small 
                         (\∼1000 cm3), low-cost (\∼US\$ 1M) experiments in 
                         space in very short time frames (\∼2 yr). In the field of 
                         high-energy astrophysics, in particular, it is a considerable 
                         challenge to design instruments with compelling science and 
                         competitive capabilities that can fit in very small satellite 
                         buses, such as a cubesat platform, and operate them with very 
                         limited resources. Here, we describe a hard X-ray (30200 keV) 
                         experiment, LECX (Localizador de Explosoes C osmicas de Raios X 
                         Locator of X-Ray Cosmic Explosions), that is capable ´ of 
                         detecting and localizing within a few degrees events like 
                         gamma-ray bursts and other explosive phenomena in a 2U-cubesat 
                         platform, at a rate of \∼5 events per year. In the current 
                         gravitational wave era of astronomy, a constellation or swarm of 
                         small spacecraft carrying instruments such as LECX can be a very 
                         cost-effective way to search for electromagnetic counterparts of 
                         gravitational wave events produced by the coalescence of compact 
                         objects.",
