Collect and store Low Frequency (LF) and Very Low Frequency (VLF) signals, normally blocked by the earth's atmosphere.

Description

Collect and store Low Frequency (LF) and Very Low Frequency (VLF) signals, normally blocked by the earth's atmosphere. Data will then be retransmitted by Very High Frequency (VHF) signals to ground stations for analysis. Retransmitted data will also be available to amateur radio astronomers around the globe, who can receive these unencrypted VHF signals.
The CubeSat will be carried into low earth orbit by Vaya Space aboard its Dauntless™ orbital launch vehicle as a ride-share option, powered by the STAR-3D™ Hybrid Propulsion System, using patent pending technology that converts recycled thermoplastics into "greener" rocket fuel. The scheduled launch date has not been announced, but is expected no later than fourth quarter of 2023.
