Test several technologies intended to help better track and identify CubeSats.
Latest in a series of NASA student-intern built spacecraft, will be used to test several technologies intended to help better track and identify CubeSats and other small spacecraft from the ground.
The CubeSat will include a radio frequency identification tag, a passive radar reflector that includes a unique spacecraft identifier, and a L-band tracking system. As the number of spacecraft are flown in Earth orbit increases and the size of those spacecraft decreases, systems such as these have the potential to aid future space situational awareness and space traffic management.
