SOMP 2 [TU Dresden]
SOMP 2 (Student's Oxygen Measurement Project 2) is a student picosat project of the Techniche Universitšt Dresden. It is built to the 2U-CubeSat) form factor.
The goal of the project is to measure atomic oxygen of the upper atmosphere, test flexible solar cells and to test the TUD developed Cubesat bus.
On baord are several technical experiments for a thermoelectric generator, a highly sensitive accelerometer and a EMC protection foil.
SOMP 2 is part of the QB50 project and carries the FIPEX (Flux-Φ-Probe Experiment) sensor, which was tested on the SOMP cubesat. The QB50 project, which will demonstrate the possibility of launching a network of 50 CubeSats built by Universities Teams all over the world as a primary payload on a low-cost launch vehicle to perform first-class science in the largely unexplored lower thermosphere.
The satellite will be launched with the bulk of the QB50 constellation to the ISS in 2017, from where they will be deployed.
