TechEdSat 13



TechEdSat 13 hosts several experiments, including an artificial intelligence and machine learning module with a neuromorphic processor designed to execute algorithms in a way that mimics the human brain. The spacecraft also carries an “exo-brake” device that will deploy to help the satellite generate atmospheric drag, allowing TechEdSat 13 to drop out of orbit faster.

The atmospheric brake technology could be used in future small satellites to help ensure they can de-orbit after completing their missions, preventing the creation of unnecessary space junk.
