CubeSat to GTO with tether for Coulomb Drag Experiment and measuring radiation in the Van Allen belts.


Support ULF plasma wave modeling in Vlasiator. Coulomb Drag Experiment (CDE): Deploying a long charged tether; measuring ambient plasma density, and the strength of Coulomb drag in different plasma densities. Relativistic Electron and Proton Experiment (REPE): Measuring electron and proton spectra, to monitor the dynamics of the most penetrating radiation in the Van Allen belts Magnetic field measurements
