Picacho

Picacho [Lunasonde]

Picacho Picacho is an 1U CubeSat technology demonstration of Lunasonde’s sensors.

It will measure the power spectral density of low-frequency radio signals in the ionosphere, which will help inform designs for the company’s future satellites.

Picacho was to fly on the Vigoride-7 spacecraft targeted to launch on the SpaceX Transporter-9. After Vigoride 7 was demanifested, it was to be directly deployed from the launch vehicle. The deployment failed.
