CUTE 1.7 + APD 2 [LSS]
Cute-1.7 + APD II is a follow-on satellite to the Cute-1.7 + APD, and much improvements will be conducted in many components of Cute-1.7 + APD II, in particular, for amateur communications system, camera system, APD sensor, based on the experiences acquired in the development and operation of Cute-1.7 + APD.
CUTE 1.7 + APD 2 has an redesigned satellite structure for increased solar cell area. With a length of 2 Cubesat units and a height of 1.5 Cubesat units it is not compliant with the Cubesat standard.
