Radiation experiment, AIS reicever and communication through Iridium.


Technology for two-way communication with the ground systems for operations. It carries a new science experiment which measures the radiation effects on the graphene material in real environment in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). Another technology that carries is an AIS receiver for tracking all the vessels inside its footprint around the globe. The communication consist of an Iridium Short Burst Data (SBD) modem and makes use of the Iridium constellation.

Keywords AIS, Globalstar or Iridium or Inmarsat
