Part of QB50 to study lower termosphere and study atmospheric re-entry.


QB50. Study the atmospheric re-entry. The reduced dimensions, 34x10x10 cm, as well as the absence of special protective systems, make it very similar to debris produced during the breakup of a spacecraft. The satellite will collect data about the temperature, heat flux, pressure, drag force, and attitude during re-entry.

All data will be transmitted before its destruction using the Iridium communication system. QB50. EntrySat incorporates five absolute pressure sensors and six heat flux sensors. The absolute pressure sensors are mounted on the side faces and on the front face of the CubeSat. The heat flux sensors are mounted on all the six faces.
