Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The Iodine Satellite (iSat) spacecraft was a to be the first CubeSat to demonstrate high change in velocity from a secondary payload launch safe propulsion system using a Hall thruster modified to use iodine as a propellant. The mission was to demonstrate CubeSat maneuverability, including plane change, altitude change and change in its closest approach to Earth to ensure atmospheric reentry in less than 90 days. More »
