Demonstrate inexpensive drag-free technology ( Gravitational Reference Sensor) in a nanosatellite mission.

Description

Demonstrate inexpensive drag-free technology in a nanosatellite mission. The performance goal is derived from the NASA Earth Science Goals for future geodesy: namely a drag-free target performance of 10-12 m s-2 Hz-1/2 in the frequency range of 10 mHz to 1 Hz. To demonstrate integration of the new technology and to provide an in-orbit performance test.
