Brik-2 [ISIS]

The Brik-2 (Brik-II), built by ISIS for the Royal Netherlands Air Force, is a CubeSat (6U) technological testbed mission.

Designed and integrated by ISIS, BRIK-II will serve as a testbed for various communications experiments and demonstrate how nanosatellites can provide a meaningful contribution to military operations. The mission represents a significant step forward for the Dutch Ministry of Defenseís efforts to develop their first space capabilities, with a particular emphasis on responsive launch.

Brik-2ís payload consist of:

  • a military radio frequency receiver, details not given
  • an UHF communication system
  • a Langmuir probe to measure the electron density in the ionosphere

Brik-2 will be launched on a shared LauncherOne (L1) rocket in 2021.
