Oneliner Technology demonstrators as payload for SOURCE including solar panels, a composite sandwich structure and other sensors. Further payload is provided by the German Aerospace Center (DLR). The camera mounted on SOURCE is also part of a future IRS mission and will be flight tested, functioning as an earth observation camera as well as a star tracker for attitude control. Besides the space testing of these components there are multiple scientific payloads by the IRS onboard SOURCE. Two FIPEX Sensors will measure the level of atomic oxygen in altitudes below 200km. Heat flux sensors combined with pressure sensors will study the environment of the CubeSat upon reentry.
