Part of QB50 to study lower termosphere and demonstrate medium-wave infrared detector.

Description

The main objective is to operate its primary payload: the Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS). An experiment to assess the performance of the n-Octadecane as a Phase Change Material (PCM). Developed in collaboration with the University of Liège. A Medium Wave Infrared Detector, developed by the Spanish company New Infrared Technologies, which aims at testing this kind of detectors. The manufacturing process is based on the Vapour Phase Deposited PbSe technology in space conditions. An experimental software for an attitude determination and control system based on fuzzy control theory. The purpose is to test the suitability of this kind of algorithms for spacecraft attitude control applications. QB50.
