Educational mission with antenna calibration and camera payloads.
Design, build, test and operate a student CubeSat for scientific and educational purposes whilst paving the way for future generations of students who want to develop their own CubeSats.
EISCAT, European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association, is a scientific association that operates several radio telescopes in Sweden, Norway and Finland. Their new project, EISCAT 3D, is a new way of observing the atmosphere over big volumes. Their EISCAT 3D will be ready for operation by 2021. The EISCAT instrument on the satellite shall consist of a transmitter designed to provide a reliable calibration signal for the ground based antennas.
