New 3D Printed CubeSat from Roboze and University of Colorado Boulder's Aerospace Team Measures Electromagnetic Effects of Space Storms

Tuesday, March 16, 2021 - 12:00pm

The CubeSat will spend at least six months in orbit measuring electromagnetic waves emitted by lightning discharges on the earth's surface.

Key Points: 
  • The CubeSat will spend at least six months in orbit measuring electromagnetic waves emitted by lightning discharges on the earth's surface.
  • The CubeSat's small size and particular geometries, including strict mass and volume limitations, prompted the Lightning, Atmosphere, Ionosphere and Radiation Belt (LAIR) research team to select 3D printing over conventional methods for the manufacturing of critical components.
  • Leveraging its high-performance polymer, polyether ether ketone (PEEK), Roboze will produce the CubeSat's magnetic field sensor holders.
  • "Because we are so constrained by mass, 3D printing was the ideal solution for our CubeSat," said VickiKnoer, a researcher in the project.
