Electric Field Instrument
Operational
Thermal ion imager and Langmuir probe to measure ion temp, electron temp, ion density, electron density, spacecraft potential and ion incident angle.n/a
HF Beacon Transmitter
Operational
The main objective of the HF Beacon on ZACUBE-1 is to provide a continuous radio signal to determine the elevation resolving algorithm of the SuperDARN HF Radar antenna at SANAE in Antarctica. The signal will also be used to characterize the beam pattern of this and other HF Radar antennas in the SuperDARN network, and to characterize the ionosphere over the polar regions.n/a
