QB50P1 is one of two precursor satellites for the QB50 project, which demonstrates the possibility of launching a network of 50 CubeSats built by Universities Teams all over the world as a primary payload on a low-cost launch vehicle to perform first-class science in the largely unexplored lower thermosphere.
QB50P1 is a 2U-CubeSat built on a structure delivered by ISIS to test the Set 1 (INMS) payload.
The following payloads were integrated into the ISIS satellite platforms:
After reaching orbit, the satellite received the additional radio amateur name EO 79 (European OSCAR 79).
