This nanosatellite, rated 12U according to the CubeSat standard, will carry two scientific instruments on board: a spectrometer and an imager. For this project, the CSUG, which is in charge of the mission and the instrumentation, is working in partnership with Toulouse University Space Centre (CSUT) to create the platform and the ground segment.

The goal behind this satellite is for it to be designed as much as possible by students, which is why some sixty students from a variety of courses take part each year.

The project, which began in 2015, is set for launch in 2021 on a two-year mission.
