STAR VIBE

Small Telescope for Advanced Reconnaissance
Vision Inspection Boom Experiment

TIME HORIZON

2021-2022

This is our first demonstration mission, whose primary goal is to verify the performance of two optical payloads: an EO telescope and a system for auto-inspection of satellites. The mission preparation began in June 2021, and the mission launch is currently scheduled for November 2022 aboard SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. Our optical payload will be mounted to the 6U CubeSat satellite designed and developed by our partners, German Orbital Systems.
