Another passenger of the ISILaunch17 Campaign is BGUSat, a 3U CubeSat built by Ben Gurion University of Israel, with support from Israeli Aerospace Industries. It is a technology demonstrator mission for various new nanosatellite avionics systems developed for future operational missions, while the primary mission objectives are cloud imaging for academic research and measurement of atmospheric background radiation.
BGUSat has deployable solar panels and operates in UHF and S-band for its primary communication systems.
Following the final test campaign to prepare BGUSat for flight at the facilities of IAI in Israel, the satellite was shipped to our facilities in the Netherlands. Representatives of the BGUsat team integrated the satellite in the QuadPack deployer, ready to be launched on PSLV.
