UniSat-6

GAUSS (La Sapienza University of Rome)

The satellite is built in 50cm x 50cm x50cm box-shape bus, optimized for piggy-back launch. All instruments are powered by solar cells mounted on the spacecraft body, with maximal electrical power of 30W. Satellite has no on-orbit propulsion or attitude control, and only passive attitude stabilization system based on permanent magnets. Unisat-6 released in orbit four Cubesats, 25 hours and 38 minutes after the separation from the Dnepr Launch Vehicle. This timing was requested in order to comply with the specifications of the launcher and to make the release just a few minutes before being visible from Rome. Those cubesat satellites are 2U ANTELSAT, AeroCube-6, 3U LEMUR-1 and 3U TigriSat.
