Headline Details: A 1U CubeSatwith the following objectives> 1) Evaluation of availability of a de-orbitable configuration satellite in consideration of future environment in space 2) Evaluation of performance and functions of a test body in space environment 3) Establishment of base technology about the super lightweight space structure technology that is necessary for future supersized space structure 4) Encouraging the talent carrying the next generation by an activity students mainly participate in as a part of a research of university education 5) Project and film the picture which have advertised and publish the data taken in space 6) Offer the opportunity of satellite tracking for ham operators and amateur astronomers, and contribute to improvement of satellite tracking technic 1) Minimum success (The missions that we must succeed) i) Establish communication between satellite and earth station 2) Full success (The missions that we eager to try and get good results) i) Extend and unfold a contained drag chute ii) Take a photograph of drag chute which is projected a picture using an on board camera iii) Grasp the shape of unfolded drag chute by taken photo and the value of sensors iv) Let down the altitude of orbit by using drag chute which suffer air resistance v) Confirm the effect of temperature control of LCD by comparing the value of sensors 3) Extra success (The missions that we wish to get good results if possible) i) Locate the satellite using CCR (Corner Cube reflecter) ii) Comprehend the situation of electric power generation of solar cells on drag chute by optical communication using a telescope Proposing a UHF downlink with AX25. Planning a launch in September 2016 from Tanegashima into a 400x400km 51 degree orbit.
