Headline Details: The satellite will be a 3U CubeSat, consisting of 3 main modules: a science unit, a functional unit and an experimental unit. The science unit will contain a set of standardized sensors for QB50 scientific mission provided by MSSL and an interface board. The Primary objective of the experiment is to demonstrate the orbital maneuvering and drag compensation capabilities of a CubeSat using an integral green monopropellant microthruster. The idea behind this experiment is to further advance the technology of nanosatellite micro propulsion that is required to implement future projects of CubeSat constellations. To contribute to the QB50 mission objectives the thruster would be designed to implement orbital maintenance/correction of a CubeSat by producing incremental (to minimize the effects of thrust vector misalignment) thrust in the direction of the velocity vector to overcome atmospheric drag and thus considerably prolonging satellite’s orbital lifetime. This would increase science return of the mission and also reduce the chance of collision with other CubeSats. Proposing to use UHF transceiver with 9k6 FSK modulation with AX25 packet format. ** A downlink on 437.265MHz has been coordinated**
