POPSAT-HIP 1 [Microspace]

POPSAT-HIP 1 is a triple cubesat built by Microspace Rapid Pte Ltd., Singapore. The spacecraft is to demonstrate the functionality of a high resolution optical payload and attitude control propulsion system on a Cubesat Class Nano-satellite.

POPSAT-HIP 1 featured proprietary micropropulsion system for nanosatellites, which was designed and developed at Microspace Rapid Pte Ltd of Singapore. The propulsion system is for attitude control with 6 micronozzles modules placed on the edges of the front face and 2 micronozzles placed along one of the long sides of the satellite.

POPSAT-HIP 1 was launched in multi satellite launch on a Dnepr rocket in June 2014 from Yasny (Dombarovsky) cosmodrome.
