ADCS technology demonstrations including propulsion module. Radio occultation experiment, atmospheric spectrometer and space materials experiment.
GPS radio occultation experiment to characterize the upper atmosphere (University of Calgary), an atmospheric spectrometer to measure greenhouse gases (York University), and a space materials experiment to evaluate the effects of atomic oxygen on a protective coating (University of Toronto).
The technologies that have been successfully tested include a novel propulsion system (Nanosatellite Propulsion System, or “NANOPS”), custom UHF and S-band radios, innovative attitude sensors and actuators, and a modified commercial GPS receiver.
