Waseda-SAT 3 is a 1U Cubesat developed by Waseda University.
The small satellite will deploy a ultra light drag chute for accelerated deorbiting. A camera will observe and verify the chute deployment. Also on board will be a LCD projector to project images on the drag chute, where the camera will take pictures of it.
The satellite was launched on board of HTV 6 on an H-2B-304 rocket to be delivered to the ISS, from where it was deployed on 16 January 2017.
