Demonstrate a short interval, cost-effective, on-orbit platform for qualification of components for space.


Demonstrate a short interval, cost-effective, on-orbit platform for enhanced qualification of components for space flight. The data collected will be used to validate and improve computer models used to predict radiation tolerance of integrated circuits. Also serve as a communications relay for amateurs worldwide via the onboard transponder system. The communications and experiment missions will run concurrently.
