CanX 1 [UTIAS]
The CanX-1 (Canadian Advanced Nanospace eXperiments) PicoSatellite Mission is the first in a series of CubeSat Missions at the University of Toronto. The Canadian Advanced Nanospace eXperiments (CanX) promote the development and testing of low-cost space technologies and push the envelope of performance that can be achieved with small low-power devices. The first mission, CanX-1, will launch in mid 2003 and will demonstrate key enabling technologies for future missions including:
The satellite is a 10 cm cube, with a mass less than one kilogram. The satellite generates about two Watts of peak power using direct energy conversion. More power is available when peak power tracking is enabled.
The satellite was successfully deployed in orbit, but no signals were received.
