Demonstrate electromagnetically clean nanosatellite for various experiments. Reflight of SEAM.

Description

Develop and demonstrate in flight for the first time a concept of an electromagnetically clean nanosatellite with precision attitude determination, flexible autonomous data acquisition system, high-bandwidth telemetry and an integrated solution for ground control and data handling. As the first demonstration, the satellite will carry novel magnetic sensors, mounted on booms to provide science-grade measurements. Contribute to three scientific areas by providing high resolution measurements of three components of DC and AC magnetic field and one component of AC electric field in the ionosphere for: characterization of auroral current systems; monitoring of natural VLF and ELF waves; observation of antropogenic VLF and ELF waves.
