Description

The Get Away Special Passive Attitude Control Satellite (GASPACS) is a 1U CubeSat technology demonstration mission designed to test inflatable structures in space. The project aims to present a possible solution to the limited capacities of spacecraft by providing an inflatable boom that can be packed into a small space and then expanded into something much larger. GASPACS is the world’s first completely undergraduate CubeSat as well as the first satellite to use a Raspberry Pi as its onboard computer.
