SACRED [University of Arizona ]

SACRED (formerly known as AlcatelSat) represents a cooperative effort between The University of Arizona Student Satellite Program, Montpelier University and Alcatel Space Systems of France.

The payload for this satellite was produced by Montpelier University and Alcatel and provides a valuable scientific/commercial application. The electronics board for this payload will measure the total amount of high-energy radiation over a two-year span and will test four commercial integrated circuit components for their radiation hardness, functionality and annealing properties.

The launch was not successful, as the Dnepr failed 86 sec after launch.
