Demonstrate CubeSat platform for and Langmuir probe.


Main task is to develop a CubeSat that meets a specific scientific mission to be defined based on INPE’s research scientists’ needs. The technological mission consists on the multi-mission national CubeSat platform validation. The scientific mission is to obtain scientific parameters from the ionized atmosphere in a low orbit, with emphasis on the plasma bubbles study. A Langmuir Probe (LP) for measurement of electron density and temperature of the plasma ionospheric

Failure cause Antenna deployment failure was considered to be the most likely cause.
