Educational training and optical camera to take photos of the Earth.


Launch a national aerospace initiative that promotes development of aerospace machinery in Chile. Measure the ionospheric electron density and temperature by means of a Langmuir probe. We also plan to include a small experiment supplied by the Physics Department. In addition, we will also put a payload that includes an optical camera, to take photos of the earth on the visible spectrum, and a GPS for the accurate positioning of the satellite.
