SNUGLITE

SNUSGLITE [SNU]

SNUGLITE is a South Korean 2U-CubeSat designed by the Seoul National University for technology demonstrations and amateur radio communication.

The mission of SNUGLITE is:

  • Space station for amateur radio communication training. Sends beacon signals using UHF band with GMSK modulation. Earth stations that have capability of receiving S-band will be able to receive S-band signals.
  • Technology demonstration of an in-house developed dual frequency GPS receiver.
  • Technology demonstration of measuring TEC and magnetic field using dual frequency GPS receiver and fine magnetometer with a boom.

The satellite was launched on Spaceflight Industry's SSO-A multi-satellite launch on a Falcon-9 v1.2 (Block 5) rocket.
