Characterize in-situ sub-millimeter level dust and debris particles in LEO.
Characterize in-situ sub-millimeter level dust and debris particles in LEO by sensing impacts at varying times, directions and locations. Demonstrate ionospheric radio-occultation within a single CubeSat volume (10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm) using a software-defined dual frequency GPS receiver. Train students in best systems engineering practices by executing a complete spacecraft life cycle from concept design to mission operations. Precise attitude control for nanosatellites, a cold-gas micropropulsion system and a miniaturized dust/debris detector.
