Advanced PocketQube with cameras and reaction wheels.


Crowd-funded femto-satellite by start-up company STADOKO to test miniaturized thrusters, 3-axis control and a new image based navigation system. It is equipped with a camera system to take pictures of the Earth, Sun and Deep Space.

In addition to the conventional gyro- and magnetic field attitude sensors, those three components will constitute an adaptive feedback guidance system. Camera and 4 pulsed plasma thrusters. A 3 axis reaction wheel and a colour camera.
