In cooperation with NASA Ames and KACST a series of small satellites is developed to demonstrate and test core technologies for science missions like LAGRANGE or LISA.
The first one in this series is the UV LED Satellite which will be launched as a payload on a SaudiSat. Following missions will demonstrate the Differential Optical Shadow Sensor (DOSS) on a CubeSat, the Grating Angular Sensor (GAS) and eventually lead to a small drag-free satellite.
The technology demonstration of the DOSS CubeSat (an artist's conception is depicted above) was recently selected for the NASA ELaNa program.
