CFESat: The Mission

CFESat is based on an SSTL-150 satellite platform.  The payloads were supplied by LANL.


The Cibola Flight Experiment satellite (CFESat) examines radio spectra for ionosphere and lightning studies, using field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).  As well as science observation, the mission aims to show use of reconfigurable FPGAs to work in the radiation environment of low Earth orbit.
