Golden Eagle 1 (GE 1)

Golden Eagle 1 (GE 1) is an educational 1U CubeSat built by the Marquette University.

It is a mission to provide parctical engineering experience to students by building space hardware that will take visible-spectrum and infrared photographs of Earth and to test emerging memory technologies for use in future spaceflight missions.

The payload consists of a thermal camera, a visible light camera and a ferroelectric RAM experiment.

Golden Eagle 1 was selected in 2014 for launch with NASA’s ELaNa program. It was planned for a launch with JPSS 1 on a Delta-7920-10C rocket in 2017, but Marquette University has withdrawn the project in 2016.
