EduSAT is a programme that includes the project, the realization and the launch of a microsatellite with one or more didactic payload on board.
EDUSAT is an orbiting testing system for technological qualification, open to research centers and industry. In addition, the project includes the verification of dynamics principles, measurements of the Earth magnetic field, detection of cosmic particles, measurements of the Solar constant. Technological goals include the study of deorbiting systems, behaviour of solar cells in orbit, validation of an S-band transponder.
