Going to lunar orbit and primary payload of the probe is a mini radiometer and PAN/multispectral camera.

Description

The primary payload of the probe is a mini radiometer and PAN/multispectral camera.
RADMIA plans to go into the GTO orbit by a GEO satellite launch, and then it will take about a month to raise the perigee height beyond the earth's radiation belt by four chemical propulsion thrusters with a total thrust 1N, after that, it will take about a year to reach the Moon with low energy orbit by electric propulsion.
The radiation parameters on the way to the moon will be measured, and once it arrives the lunar orbit, it will begin to capture the hyperspectral image of the moon besides the radiation measurement.
The probe adopts a 3D printing structure with high intensity, impact lightweight deploy-able solar panels, innovative integrated Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS), X-band for uplink/ downlink with innovative reectarray antenna, a highly autonomous satellite housekeeping system, an ADN chemical propulsion system and a Field Emission Electric Propulsion (FEEP).
This mission would not only get the first-hand deep-space radiation parameters on the way to the moon and also test the possibility of autonomous deep space ability of the CubeSat platform.
