Provide flight heritage to spacecraft bus and predecessor to the next satellite.


The mission is to provide flight heritage to the "OreSat bus", an open source card-cage based system that is ideally suited for education CubeSat projects involving interdisciplinary teams of students. The spacecraft is the predecessor to the OreSat-1 satellite, providing flight heritage to its critical subsystems.


Manifested commercially. Successful mission thanks to massive descope.
