Divided in orbit into two subsatellites connected by a 1 km long tether.

Description

3U CubeSat that will be divided in orbit into two subsatellites connected by a 1 km long tether. Each subsatellite will be equipped with all the essential subsystems necessary to maintain its independence. The main goal of the mission is to perform two-point diagnostic measurements of electromagnetic emissions in near-Earth plasma. Multi-point measurements play a significant role in understanding energy flows driven by the Sun as well as terrestrial activity. Therefore, each subsatellite will carry a Radio Frequency Analyzer capable of performing passive diagnostic measurements of the electromagnetic field.
