Demonstrate deployable device for precise deorbiting.

Description

First "Modulated" Exobrake to target re-entry point. Updated Avionics, Radio, Iridium & GPS hardware. Digi XBee RF modules, taking the place of wired connections in the satellite, operated as wireless "data-crossroads" between TechEdSat 5 key components. Establish improved uncertainty analysis for eventual controlled flight through the Thermosphere. Improve prediction of re-entry location. Provide the base technology for sample return technology from orbital platforms. Provide the eventual testing of independent TDRV-based planetary missions. Provide engineering data for an OnOrbit Tracking Device that could improve the prediction of jettisoned material from the ISS.
