QB50. Rapid autonomous commissioning- Given past experience, the space station is prepared to demonstrate advanced autonomous commissioning. Large deployable sail - The satellite will deploy a large square (3m x 3m) membrane sail. Inflatable Structural Components - InflateSail is equipped with a 1 m long inflatable rigidisable laminate cylinder, which will be used as a structural component separating the sail and the body of the spacecraft. Drag deorbiting - The satellite will deorbit much more quickly than otherwise due to its deployable sail. Outreach - The satellite will provide beacons which amateur satellite users will be able to receive.
