Gravity gradient boom made of 30 m Nitinol tether which is also used to receive very low frequency radio waves in the kHz range. Low-cost email communications system capable of operating at a 115-kbps rate near 0.9 GHz. The goal is to demonstrate low cost communication for remote villages in third world countries. Magnetometer and Langmuir probe to measure plasma density and temperature at an altitude of 650 km for assisting in the study of the inosphere including auroral regions.
