MICU (Mineral Investigation Camera using Ultra-Violet) will use ultraviolet (UV) radiation to cause fluorescence of lunar rocks through LEDs, which we will then detect with a camera. The on-board image processor will analyse the images for possible fluorescence. Promising images will be released for downstream to Earth for advanced mineral classification.
BUBBLE is our high altitude balloon program. We provide the bus system for the gondola to fly various payloads from KSat and external payloads. The launch and recovery is organized by us.
SOURCE (Stuttgart Operated University Research Cubesat for Evaluation and Education) is an 3 Unit CubeSat. Planned launch is in 2020. Next to technology demonstrations and earth observation, the satellite will make measurements of the earth atmosphere.
Pump Application using Pulsed Electromagnets for Liquid reLocation(PAPELL) is an experiment, which will test the basic functionality of pumps using ferrofluids.
MIRKA 2 ICV
MIRKA2-ICV (Mikrorückkehrkapsel 2 – In-flight Communication Verification) is a successor to MIRKA2-RX and attempted to gather further data on the satellite communication terminal aboard it.
MIRKA 2 HyEnd
MIRKA2-HyEnD (Mikrorückkehrkapsel2-Hybrid Engine Development) was our second rocket-based high altitude experiment. It was a cooperation between HyEnD and KSat.
The cubesat CAPE is based on a project by Priv.-Doz. Dr.-Ing. Georg Herdrich and Dr.-Ing. Jaime Esper within the topic of plasma in spaceflight („Raumfahrtrelevante Plasmen“), a cooperation between the Institut für Raumfahrtsysteme and NASA Goddard.
ESMO (European Student Moon Orbiter) was the SSETI-program's third mission. Envisaged from the beginning, it only gained momentum following intesive work on SSETI Express and ESEO, eventually resulting in a feasability study in 2007.
ESEO (European Student Earth Orbiter) is a planned small satellite developed by students all over Europe under guidance by ESA. It is to be an earth observatory.
