ITÜ-pSat 1

ITÜ-pSat [ITÜ]

The primary mission of the ITÜ-pSat is to examine the performance of an on-board passive stability system consisting of a magnet which will align the satellite to the magnetic field of the Earth with an error of about 15 degrees according to simulations, and to verify this figure. A secondary objective is to download photographs taken using a camera with a resolution of 640 × 480 pixels.

The satellite was successfully deployed in orbit.
