Test and prepare consumer communications technology for use in space
Tests and prepares consumer communications technology for use in space. The growing range of devices, components and miniaturized technology available on consumer markets represents a boon for space exploration and cost management. CHEFSat specifically readies a consumer-grade radio frequency device for wider space use by testing its safety and effectiveness in a working CubeSat deployed from the International Space Station (ISS).
