SC-ODIN (Aleksandr 3)

SC-ODIN [Concordia University]

SC-ODIN or Aleksandr 3 is a Canadian 3U CubeSat developed by the Concordia University to test an imaging instrument to collect data on dust measurements and study the effect of climate change in the Kluane Lake region.

SC-ODIN will test an imaging sensor to collect data on dust measurements and investigate the impact of climate change on the Kluane Lake region. It will evaluate the practicality of a new electrical component that is more resistant to the severe conditions of space and could improve the cost-effectiveness and performance of future CubeSats.

The primary objective is to collect RGB imaging data from Canada, Lake Colhué Huapí in Argentina, and Namibian coastal regions to identify aerosol particles in dust storms.

The secondary objective is to acquire total ionizing dose (TID) data during the spacecraft's voyage.

The satellite was launched onboard the Dragon CRS-28 cargo spacecraft to the ISS, from where it was deployed in July 2023.
