Demonstrate a newly designed micro propulsion system.


Implement a newly designed micro propulsion system on a nanosat in order to confirm its functionality and test its operating parameters for potential use in future platforms needing a more versatile method of propulsion.


  1. Integrate micro-cathode thruster into a CubeSat platform.
  2. De-tumble the satellite to test attitude control.
  3. Conduct a spin-up / de-spin.
  4. Point satellite to demonstrate rotational control.
  5. Perform end-of-life delta-V maneuver.

Test for BRICSat-T and AMODS (Autonomous Mobile On-orbit Diagnostic System).
