Objectives and Applications In orbit demonstration of propulsion system prototype developed by Vilnius University and NanoAvionics. The experiment is to demonstrate the orbital maneuvering and drag compensation capabilities of a 3 kg CubeSat using an integral green monopropellant micro-thruster powerful enough to perform impulsive Hohman orbital transfer, orbit shape corrections or change of inclination. The idea behind this experiment is to increase TRL of small-satellite micro propulsion which would be developed as commercial product.
