Headline Details: A 3U CubeSat. The Ex-Alta 1 Satellite has the following science objectives: 1. Serve as a platform for the In Orbit Demonstration (IOD) of a digital fluxgate magnetometer designed at the University of Alberta. 2. Address multi-point space plasma physics with data from the QB50 constellation using the Langmuir probe common payloads and the digital fluxgate magnetometer. 3. Take part in the QB-50 string-of-pearls constellation for in-situ measurements of the lower thermosphere to build an accurate model. Proposing to use a UHF transceiver employing 9k6 GMSK using the published Cubesat Space Protocol and the QB50 whole orbit data specifications ** A downlink of 436.705MHz has been coordinated**
