CuPID [Boston University]
The CuPID (Cusp Plasma Imaging Detector) is a 6U CubeSat science mission designed to answer fundamental questions in plasma physics and space weather.
The cubesat will fly in a highly inclined, low-Earth orbit where it will measure soft X-rays.
The payload of CuPID is a Soft X-ray imager.
It was selected in 2017 by NASA to be launched as part of the ELaNa program.
