OPS-SAT, cubesat LAUNCH

15 Oct

As a flying laboratory, ESA's OPS-SAT will test and validate new techniques in mission control and on-board systems. 

OPS-SAT is devoted to demonstrating drastically improved mission control capabilities that will arise when satellites can fly more powerful on-board computers. It consists of a satellite that is only 30cm high but that contains an experimental computer that is ten times more powerful than any current ESA spacecraft.
