The development of CubeSats and more frequent launch chances of sounding rockets are a total game changer to the space program, and it allows us to build space instruments that are technologically feasible and affordable. Therefore, it gives us a good opportunity to build a small cosmic-ray detector which has capabilities to measure the flux, direction, and even energy of cosmic rays at an altitude above the limitation of balloon experiments, and it may open a new door for building a constellation of detectors to study cosmic-ray physics. Compact Scintillator Array Detector (ComSAD) is a funded sounding rocket mission of Taiwan's National Space Organization. In this paper, we present the concept, design, and performance of ComSAD which is also suitable for future CubeSat missions.
