3U cubesat with 3-axis control. Relayed ADS-B signals from airplanes

GomX-3's distinctive helical antenna has detected millions of signals from aircraft, building a detailed map of global aviation traffic.

GomX-3 also carried a miniaturised X-band transmitter, developed by Syrlinks in France, which has demonstrated the rapid download of data. In addition, the CubeSat was measuring radio signals emitted by telecom satellites to assess their overall transmission efficiency and how their signal quality changes with respect to distance from their target footprints.
