Nitric oxide Infrared Cooling Emissions CubeSat - NICEcube

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Nitric oxide Infrared Cooling Emissions CubeSat - NICEcube
Design a low-cost, cube-sat class infrared radiometer to observe and provide real-time upper atmosphere radiative cooling data for input to “nowcasts” of space weather. Draw on advances in detector arrays, mini cryo-coolers, on-board processing, and CubeSat buses. Solicit industry partner to develop instrument design for proposal to NASA, DARPA, etc. More »
