Measure vibration and shock during the launch of a Super Strypi and demonstrate HaWK solar array,
The primary mission for the satellite is to measure and record vibration and shock data during the launch of a new space delivery vehicle called the Super Strypi. The satellite will also mark the first flight of a revolutionary solar array system called the High Watts per Kilogram (HaWK) system.
HaWK, manufactured by MMA Designs, is designed to provide a spacecraft with sufficient power to accomplish space weather experiments during a low-earth-orbit (LEO) mission. Among these experiments is a boom which extends one meter from the side of the spacecraft.
This spacecraft, with its 6U CubeSat form factor, also marks the initial deployment of a revolutionary launch mechanism called a Canisterized Satellite Dispenser (CSD), manufactured by Planetary Systems Corporation.
