About

The NPS-SCAT CubeSat takes a single experiment from the NPSAT1 satellite, the Solar Cell Measurement System (SMS), as its payload. This experiment measures the characteristics of a solar cell to gain an understanding of how the experimental solar cells degrade over time due to interactions with the space environment. The supporting subsystems are fulfulled primarily by commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components, including the command and data handling subsystem, electrical power subsystem, and the primary communications subsystem.
