This article contains orbital elements but does not include an epoch, or date when those elements, which typically vary over time, were correct. Please help by adding the epoch for the current data, or changing the orbital elements to ones with a known epoch.
MightySat-2.1, also known as P99-1 or Sindri was a small spacecraft developed by the Air Force Research Laboratory to test advanced technologies in imaging, communications, and spacecraft bus components in space.
MightySat II.1 was manufactured by General Dynamics in a modular approach, using, e.g., VME-based subsystems, and a planar payload deck for small experimental payloads. The satellite measured 0.67m x 0.83m x 0.86m (WxLxH) and had a launch weight of 123.7 kg (Bus Mass: 87.1 kg). Power was provied by 2-axis articulated Si solar arrays with a designed end-of-life power output of 330 W. The Attitude Determination and Control Subsystem featured a 3-axis zero-momentum-bias reaction wheel assembly with a Sun sensor, a star tracker and inertial measurement units, delivering an attitude jitter of 15.7 arcsec/sec, and poiting accuracy and knowledge of 648 and 540 arcsec, respectively. The communication was compatible with the US Air Force Space-Ground Link System with data rates of 1 Mbit/s for payload/experiments data downlink, 2.0 kbit/s for Command uplink, and 20 kbit/s for Telemetry downlink. Computing and data handling was done by a RAD6000 CPU @ 20 MIPS with an IEEE VME backplane 128 MByte CPU RAM, and a 21.6 MBytes/sec transfer rate, and a 2 Gbit Solid State Recorder for Science Data. Among its 10 experiments was a Fourier Transform Hyperspectral Imager.
