Headline Details: A 3U cubesat. Technology Demonstration 1: Large deployable sail The satellite will deploy a large (5-by-5-metre) square Kapton sail. Technology Demonstration 2: Attitude control by COM/COP offset Deorbitsail is equipped with 3-axis-stabilizing attitude determination and control system. A novel capability of this system is pointing via centre-of-mass / centre-of-pressure offset. Technology Demonstration 3: Drag deorbiting The satellite will deorbit much more quickly than otherwise due to its deployable sail. Satellite pointing will be optimized by the attitude control system for maximum drag. D: Outreach The satellite will provide beacons which amateur satellite users will be able to receive. Will downlink on VHF with 9k6 BPSK. Planning a Dnepr LEO orbit. ** A Downlink frequency of 145.975MHz has been coordinated**
