Educational mission with drag chute for deorbiting.

  • Evaluation of satellite body which made by Integral molding in space environment.
  • Evaluation of performance and functions of a test body in space environment.
  • Establishment of base technology about the super lightweight space structure technology that is necessary for future supersized space structure.
  • Encouraging the talent carrying the next generation by an activity student mainly participate in as a part of a research of university education.
  • Offer the opportunity of satellite tracking and operation for ham operators and amateur astronomers, and contribute to improvement of satellite communication technic ( 1 )

Minimum success: Establish communication between satellite and earth station.

Full success:

  1. Measure strain and temperature of satellite body.
  2. Announce the command to turn on the LED mounted on the satellite to amateur radio stations which use that frequency band Provide a satellite operation experience.
  3. Receive messages from general amateur radio stations which use that frequency band. Save it to memory. Downlink the messages few times.
  4. Recruit the message and we uplink it from command station. Downlink the messages few times.
  5. Extend and unfold a contained drag chute.
  6. Let down the altitude of orbit by using drag chute which suffer air resistance.
