EagleSat is an educational 1U CubeSat built by the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to bring together all engineering disciplines, as well as blending together the business majors to mimic a small business environment to the greatest extent possible to design and build an exploratory CubeSat mission that will test various types of memory for bit flipping due to solar radiation while in low Earth orbit.
The payload consists of RAM memory to be tested, a solid state radiation detector, a crystal video receiver and a GPS unit.
EagleSat was selected in 2013 for launch with NASA’s ELaNa program. It was launched on the ELaNa-14 mission.
