KrakSat [SatRevolution]

KrakSat is a Polish Cubesat for education and technologies developed by the AGH University of Science and Technology and SatRelvolution.

It is an 1U CubeSat developed by students of the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków. It is built using SR-NANO-BUS provided by SatRevolution. The mission is to assess the feasibility of a ferrofluid-based attitude control system - a reaction wheel designed by members of Student Research Group "Integra" at AGH University of Science and Technology.

Via a contract with NanoRacks the satellite will launch on board Cygnus CRS-10 and will be released from ISS in November 2018.
