Demonstrate various CubeSat platform technologies.


Increase in radiation resistance of electronic systems. Ensure sufficient electricity to power picosatellite. Increasing the transmission capacity for the transmission of data from experimental picosatellites. Experiments:

  • robust onboard computer with two processors, two data bus, two power bus, reliable bus drivers and disconnectors, hardware watch dog, firmware upgrade on orbit capabilities.
  • usage of super-capacitors in power supply.
  • highly sectorized architecture of solar panels.
  • autonomous rough location determination based on FM-RDS receivers.
  • rough attitude determination system based on simple UV, Vis and IR detectors - modulation adaptation on channel properties.
