ST5 payload

Cold Gas Micro-Thruster (CUTC)
Controls will provide propulsion for orbit maintenance.

The X-Band Transponder Communication System
will support two-way communications between the ST5 micro-satellites and the ground stations.

Variable Emittance Coatings for Thermal Control
will test the ability to configure the thermal characteristics of a radiator surface on the micro sat.

Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) Ultra-Low Power Radiation Tolerant (CULPRiT) Logic
Provides a low-power digital-logic test circuit that will help reduce power requirements for future satellites.
