Measure and record in-situ telemetry data from within the P-POD during launch.
Measure and record in-situ telemetry data from within the P-POD during launch. Specifically, the CP9 and StangSat CubeSats will record thermal data with a k-type thermocouple and dynamic data using two sets of accelerometers measuring ranges of ±10g and ±100g.
Demonstrate new technologies within the P-POD platform, including power-on capability and more notably, wireless communication. StangSat will stream its telemetry data in real-time via WiFi to CP9 during launch, violating the existing CubeSat specification prohibiting RF within the P-POD. Demonstrating wireless communication within the P-POD can benefit future missions that do not wish to develop satellite-to-ground radio links.
