HAVELSAT is a 2U CubeSat to be launched within the EU FP7 project QB 50. It is built jointly by HAVELSAN and Istanbul Technical University.
The technological payload of HAVELSAT is a Software Defined Radio (SDR) for communication. The satellite also performs a small scale onboard image processing.
As a payload for QB50, the satellite carries a multi-needle Langmuir probe (mNLP) sampling the electron density of the space around it.
The satellite was launched with the bulk of the QB50 constellation to the ISS in 2017, from where the satellite was deployed on 16 May 2017.
