Delfi-n3Xt

Delfi-n3Xt [Technical University of Delft]

The Delfi-n3Xt (or Delfi-Next) mission is second in a development line of nanosatellites called the ‘Delfi Program’ and is successor to the successful Delfi-C3 mission.

For Delfi-Next, the two payloads onboard are a micro-propulsion system developed by TNO in cooperation with TU Delft and University of Twente called T3µPS and an in-orbit configurable, high-efficient transceiver platform developed by ISIS BV, in cooperation with TU Delft and SystematIC BV called ITRX.

Delfi-Next will carry out an onboard experiment on hydrogenated amorphous silicon solar cells from the micro-electronics institute DIMES from the TU Delft.

Additionally, an experimental very low frequency receiver might be tested as precursor for the OLFAR program.
