HAUSAT 2 [Hankuk Aviation University]

HAUSAT-2 (Hankuk Aviation University SATellite 2) was the second satellite developed at Hankuk Aviation University.

The objective of HAUSAT 2 was to demonstrate several technologies. The spacecraft incorporated a Plug-and-Play type BEU (Bus Electronic Unit) that combines all subsystem and payload electronics into one electronics box.

The payload consisted of:

  • Animal Tracking System (ATS)
  • Electric Plasma Probe (EPP)
  • Total Ionizing Dose Meter (TIDM)
  • Star Tracker (ST)
  • GPS Receiver (GPSR)

The satellite was originally to be launched in 2008 or 2009. But eventually, although the satellite was completed, it was never launched.
