First-MOVE [TU München]

First-MOVE, (First Munich Orbital Verification Experiment) or MOVE 1 is a 1U CubeSat built by students at the Technical University of München.

First-MOVE carries a CCD camera and has two deployable solar panels carrying a new generation of solar cell – triple junction GaAs / Ge. The transceiver was supplied by ISIS and uses a UHF uplink and VHF downlink. The antennas are mounted on the ends of the deployable solar panels.

Launch took place as a piggy-back payload on a Dnepr launch vehicle in November 2013.
