Astro Digital Demo 6, 7

Landmapper-Demo 6 [Astro Digital]

Astro Digital's Landmapper-Demo is a technology demonstration mission consisting of two separate, identical spacecraft: Landmapper-Demo 6 (Demo 6) and Landmapper-Demo 7 (Demo 7).

Each of the 81 kg spacecraft includes two payloads: an optical communication system and a high-performance payload data processor. The spacecraft bus is the Corvus-XL design. The common satellite bus uses reaction wheels, magnetic torque coils,star trackers, magnetometers, sun sensors, and gyroscopes to enable precision 3-axis pointing. The satellites have an electric propulsion system and a mono-propellant chemical thruster to provide functional redundancy at the mission level for orbital maneuvers.
