Our newest mission POLAR is 2 years in the making. Nearing entry into phase A in the UNP program. 

About POLAR:

Polarimetric Observer Light Analyzing Research (POLAR) is UBNL’s newest satellite. POLAR is a 3U satellite with a MEMS polarimeter payload. 


This is the first polarimeter small enough to fly on a cubesat platform. The data gathered will be used to identify the material of target space objects. This data can increase Space Situational Awareness (SSA) and help protect important space assets from space debris.
