Ten-Koh is a satellite by the Kyushu Institute of Technology to observe environment in low earth orbit and the primary purpose is to provide valuable data for future development of satellites or operation.
Ten-Koh shape is Quasi-spherical, which diameter is about 50 cmm and covered by solar cells. The design is inherited from Shin'en 2. This satellite features structure, thermal control, attitude control, telecommunication, Bus power system and payload power system.
The purpose of Ten-Koh is to measure the degradation of advanced material which has potential to use in the futureto measure radiation, magnetic flux density and electron density on LEO. Aditionally it is to contribute to society or all over the world with telecommunication technology.
