The primary objective of this satellite is to demonstrate advanced hybrid power supply system using Lithium-ion Capacitor (Li-C) and Lithium-ion battery. Li-C enables long term operation in high powerr discharge and in deep charge-discharge cycle. It works well in space environment, even without a heater. OPUSAT also has deployable solar array paddles, and is equipped with a spin stabilization system using magnetic torquers.
