ROSE 1 [Phase Four]
ROSE 1 is a 6U CubeSat experimental spacecraft designed to provide an orbital test-bed for the Phase Four Radio Frequency Thruster (RFT), the first plasma propulsion system to fly on a nanosatellite.
This research program is intended to demonstrate that the Phase Four RFT can safely launch, operate and perform experimental orbital course corrections in space. For the ROSE-1 mission, the spacecraft will fly in a LEO near-circular orbit with altitude of approximately 575 km and with inclination of approximately 98°.
