Test an imaging instrument to collect data on dust measurements and study the effect of climate change in the Kluane Lake region.

Description

Test an imaging instrument to collect data on dust measurements and study the effect of climate change in the Kluane Lake region. Evaluate the viability of a new electronic component that shows better resistance to the harsh conditions of space and that could improve the cost-effectiveness and performance of future CubeSat computers.

  • Primary mission: Will capture RGB imaging data over Canada, Lake Colhué Huapí in Argentina, and Namibian coastal regions to characterize the aerosol particles that are present in the dust storms which frequent these locations.
  • Secondary mission: Collect total ionizing dose (TID) data throughout the mission of the spacecraft.
