Objectives and Applications MIT/LL (Massachusetts Institute of Technology/Lincoln Laboratory) followed up on its MicroMAS-1 experience by building a second MicroMAS-2, which is planned for flight on a commercial launch vehicle by late 2017. While similar in design to MicroMAS-1 (e.g., 3U CubeSat), it contains more channels, by way of an additional miniaturized receiver, to provide more accurate temperature and moisture information. MicroMAS-2 also contains a slightly larger solar array in order to generate approximately 3 W of power for the payload, or about 60 percent more power than MicroMAS-1.
