Ho’oponopono (“to make right” in Hawaiian language)
Comprised of six essential subsystems, Ho‘oponopono is designed to fit a 3U CubeSat form-factor and incorporate important secondary features to ensure mission success. Its six subsystems are payload (PLD), attitude determination and control (ADCS), communications (COM), electrical power (EPS), command and data handling (CDH), and structure (STR). The mission is to provide orbital radar calibration support to the U.S. Air Force by collecting and disseminating ephemeris data in response to radar interrogations.

The launch of a Minotaur I rocket for the U.S. Air Force ORS-3 mission is scheduled to occur on November 20, 2013 from Wallops Flight Facility (WFF), Virginia, with a planned launch window from 00:30 – 02:00 UTC. The launch, from ignition to delivery of the satellites in orbit, will take a little less than twelve-and-a-half minutes, with a targeted 500 km circular orbit at an inclination of 40.5 degrees.
