Demonstrate long-term autonomous cluster flight of multiple satellites.

Description

Demonstrate long-term autonomous cluster flight of multiple satellites, with algorithms based on DSSL’s ERC-funded FADER study; and determine the position of a radiating electromagnetic terrestrial source based on time difference of arrival (TDOA) and/or frequency difference of arrival (FDOA). Additional payloads may include a micro Pulsed Plasma Thruster (PPT) and a new space processor.
