The COSPAR 3U Mission marks Hex20’s innovative and collaborative venture in space exploration, joining forces with Laboratory of Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP – USA), National Central University – Center for Astronautical Physics and Engineering (NCU – CAPE), Laboratoire Atmosphères, Milieux, Observations Spatiales (LATMOS – France), and Skyroot Aerospace – India to launch a 3U CubeSat platform mission with a comprehensive payload. Led by Hex20, this mission combines cutting-edge technology and expertise from multiple industry leaders.
The satellite platform, expertly engineered by Hex20, serves as the backbone of the mission, providing a robust and adaptable 3U CubeSat platform for seamless integration and deployment of the payloads. LASP – USA, NCU – CAPE and LATMOS contribute their state-of-the-art payloads to the mission, including a Sun Sensor, Dosimeter and IR Sensor, respectively.The Dosimeter from NCU, plays a vital role in monitoring and recording radiation exposure during the mission, providing essential data for future space endeavours. LASP Sun Sensor offers precise sun tracking capabilities, optimizing the satellite’s orientation and power generation through efficient solar panel utilization. Meanwhile, LATMOS IR Sensor captures thermal data for comprehensive Earth observation, enabling climate monitoring and aiding disaster response and resource management efforts.
Skyroot Aerospace is the Launch Vehicle Partner, leveraging its expertise in launch services to deploy the CubeSat into its designated orbit with precision and safety.
Through this collaborative endeavour, the COSPAR 3U Mission promises to advance our understanding of space radiation, optimize satellite performance, and enhance Earth observation capabilities. The synergy between Hex20, LASP, NACU, LATMOS and Skyroot Aerospace represents a significant leap forward in space technology, fostering exploration and discovery in the cosmos and inspiring future missions with its groundbreaking achievements.
