Payload Design and Dimensions


  • Designed to measure the magnitude of accumulated triboelectric charge on the surface of the nose cone at carious altitudes

  • Time stamp all altitudes and charge measurements to assist in post flight analysis

Tesseract payload overview

Tesseract Payload Overview

  • The system can be broken down into three separate subsystems:

    • Voltmeter

    • CubeSat

    • Ground Station

  • The nose cone will be coated with MGM Chemicals 838 Total Ground Carbon Conductive Coating
