Test the instruments and deep space technologies for asteroid prospecting missions.


Test the scientific instruments and deep space technologies at the heart of our asteroid prospecting missions, but to also provide a platform that will allow others to fly their mission with our technology! Designed to accommodate one of our UV, hyperspectral or MWIR instruments, it is a modular and cost-efficient spacecraft that we are making available for technologists and science investigators to further their own research, whether it be in Earth orbit or deep space.
