Demonstrate CubeSat platform technologies for deep space missions.


Test the first space friendly electronic spacecraft subsystems and design considerations in combination with modern COTS electrical components leading to increased radiation tolerance within the harsh space environment as a precursor for the next generation of Deep Space CubeSat missions and serving in future also for the conquest of Mars by CubeSats/small satellites.

Contain MOSFET-Free Ultra High Efficient radiation tolerant switch mode low voltage power supply, cold redundant onboard computer with cold redundant UHF transceivers and VHF beacons, cold redundant zero deployment torque dipole antennas, active Attitude Determination and Control Subsystem with special custom-made Ultra Low Power GPS-L1 navigation receiver and a set of high power LEDs transmitting in visible spectra (blue) to demonstrate EPS high power handling capability.

Digital Color camera will capture images of Earth to confirm ADCS stabilization functionality and “high” data transfer throughput capability of the custom-built FSK onboard radio.
