ICube 1 [IST]
The ICube-1 cubesat is an educational pico-satellite developed by the Institute of Space Technology, Islamabad, Pakistan.
The satellite is an 1U CubeSat, carrying a low-resolution camera, a 3-axis magnetometer and several temperature sensors. The passive Attitude Control System consists of permanent magnets and hysteresis rods.
The satellite was originally planned to launch into Low Polar Earth Orbit on the maiden IOS Neptune launch vehicle. Due to the unavailability of the Neptune launch vehicle, it was deployed from the Italian UniSat 5 satellite after launch on a Dnepr booster.
The satellite was successfully deployed in orbit, but no signals were received.
