• Demonstration of low-cost access to space without performance reduction.
• Bidirectional data transfer between autonomous environmental stations and the satellite. Its primary mission was Earth imaging, with several secondary missions including orbit determination, amateur-radio communications, passive stabilization techniques, attitude detection, and composite-material research.• To demonstrate the basic functional elements of a low-power LEO “swarm” or formation PICOSAT array.
The primary "technical" mission is to get one-way communication with the satellite, and next is establish two-way communication.
GPS radio occultation experiment to characterize the upper atmosphere (University of Calgary), an atmospheric spectrometer to measure greenhouse gases (York University), and a space materials experiment to evaluate the effects of atomic oxygen on a protective coating (University of Toronto).
To take color images of the earth at a resolution of 640x480 pixels, to validate (test) a Phoenix GPS receiver from DLR in orbit, to test three-axis attitude control (based on magnetic actuation), and to verify the functionality of the spacecraft in space (technology demonstration).
Demonstration of PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) as an onboard computer.
Attitude control experiment using magnetic torquer. Amateur radio service - digital repeater (digipeater). Establish satellite system development infrastructure. Cultivate professionals in field of satellite systems.
