The JAGSAT 1 is a 2U CubeSat mission by the University of South Alabama to provide spatially resolved measurements of plasma density irregularities in the ionosphere.
The satellite is a scientific investigation mission to measure plasma electron density at submeter level resolution. The science payload will be a fast Time Domain Impedance Probe (TDIP) designed to operate for measurements in the upper F-layer, between 400 km to 800 km and will make adequate measurements in the equatorial and mid-latitude ionosphere.
JAGSAT carries a Time Domain Impedance Probe (TDIP) as intrumenttation.
It was selected in 2017 by NASA to be launched as part of the ELaNa program.
