QubeScout S1 [UMBC]
QubeScout S1 is a FemtoSat built to the 2.5P PocketQube form factor (12.5 cm × 5 cm × 5 cm) designed and built by the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).
It will Flight test fine sunsensor developed in UMBC LACO lab and determine the dynamic attitude of the QubeScout platform and will monitor the change in rotation of QubeScout as a function of changing moment of inertia during solar panel/ de-orbiter.
The satellite will be deployed from the Italian UniSat 5 satellite from a MR-FOD (Morehead Roma Femtosat Orbital Deployer) deployer after launch on a Dnepr booster.
