The LinkSat is a Broad-spectrum Radio Interference Analyzing Nanosatellite by the University of Buffalo.
The technology demonstration mission built to the 3U CubeSat form factor is to fly a software defined radio (SDR) payload in order to characterize the background radio noise on commonly used CubeSat bands. It will sample each RF band throughout the orbit to develop a temporal and spatial map of the RF noise environment.
It was selected in 2017 by NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) to be launched as part of the ELaNa program.
