Educational mission and measuring the electric field generated by the solar wind.
Main objective of our CubeSat mission is to bring more aerospace curriculum to the students of Hawaiʻi Island. Measure the electric field generated by the solar wind within the thermosphere.
They can also collect data on solar events with relation to the propagation of radio waves reflected or refracted back towards the Earth from the ionosphere. During the lifespan of this mission that data will be available for amateur operators to download directly from the satellite.
We were awarded a no cost flight of the launch and a limited resources will not allow the development of an amateur digipeater however if the launch date slips we plan to work with resources at am sat to develop a digipeater.
