Celebrate Finland's 100th independence with camera and low-frequency receiver to detect auroras.


Part of the programme of centenary of Finland’s independence in 2017. The satellite’s payload is a wide-view high detail camera and a low frequency receiver. The payload, especially the radio instrument, will test new CubeSat instrument technology. The instrument is expected to detect dynamical features e.g. aurorae in the Earth’s ionosphere. The satellite makes also technological tests of how to optimize the usage of multi-instrument observations in a single CubeSat.
