Primary experiment on HALO-Net Free Flyer is the retroreflector array.


Primary experiment on HALO-Net Free Flyer is the retroreflector array. The retroreflectors will be tested for survivability and the amount of light reflected from the small satellite to a telescope on earth. If successful, HALO-Net Free Flyer will generate data to validate optical propagation models and influence the design of future optical communication payloads for the Navy.

A GPS receiver and advanced nano-satellite communications suite will permit transmission of positional information as well as a simple receive capability.
