The X 1 3U CubeSat from NASA’s Ames Research Center is part of a rapid technology demonstration for new communications, flight computing and avionics, and guidance navigation and control capabilities.
The X-1 CubeSat will test a high-performance processor to demonstrate its performance in space and use a combination of retroreflectors and light-emitting diodes for ground tracking, spacecraft pointing, and optical communications experiments.
It was selected in 2020 by NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) to be launched as part of the ELaNa program.
