Educational mission and demonstrate CubeSat platform technologies.

Description

1. Education of students in radio and aerospace technology and design techniques 2. Technological demonstration of the satellite design 3. Successfully operate the payload and return images of NS to the ground station. 4. Provide opportunity for amateur radio operators to make radio contact with the satellite.

Test a new CubeSat frame made out of lightweight metal alloys to provide better space navigation capabilities for future CubeSats. Validate the use of onboard solar energy and battery storage technology to power a stabilization wheel that will better control the position of the satellite’s instruments.
