PolyITAN 2-SAU [ISIS]
PolyITAN-2-SAU is a 2U CubeSat designed and built by the National Technical University of Ukraine – KPI in cooperation with the Ukrainian HAM radio community. The mission participates in the QB50 project.
It carries the FIPEX (Flux-Φ-Probe Experiment) of TU Dresden as the primary payload for the QB50 project, which is able to distinguish and measure the time-resolved behaviour of atomic and molecular oxygen as a key parameter of the lower thermosphere.
The satellite was launched with the bulk of the QB50 constellation to the ISS in 2017, from where the satellite was deployed on 26 May 2017.
