Part of QB50 to study lower termosphere.
A key part of the mission of the satellite was to demonstrate the newly developed SCS Gecko multispectral imager, as well as the Radiation Mitigation VHDL Coding Technique developed and patented by the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University.
Perhaps, the third success story onboard the Cubesat for the South African space industry is the Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS) designed and manufactured by CubeSpace, a spin-off of the University of Stellenbosch.
The satellite will use magnetic sensors and actuators to do initial detumbling into a Y-Thompson spin after release from its deployer. QB50.
