Demonste electrodynamic tether for deorbiting and thermal imager.
Demostration of the DragEN from Saber Astronautics, which is a portable electrodynamic tether platform for de-orbit of picosatellites, with the potential for further develpment into a power generator tether.
The first and primary payload is thermal imaging to take pictures of earth in the long wave infrared region band, 7.5 to 13.5 microns. Uncooled microbolometer thermal camera supplied by FLIR.
Study the ocean surface temperature variation by analyzing the temperature difference over a period of 6 months. To observe the cloud cover and study the temperature variation for different types of clouds with climatic changes. To observe the temperature variations between the urban and rural areas which are caused due to greenhouse gases accumulated in the urban areas.
