The Puerto Rico CubeSat NanoRocks-2 (PR-CuNaR2) is an educational and scientiﬁc collaboration between Inter American University of Puerto Rico – Bayamon Campus, the Florida Space Institute, and the Department of Physics of the University of Central Florida (UCF).
The PR-CuNaR2 is a 3U (10x10x34 cm) conﬁguration. It will orbit at about 400 km altitude in a high inclination orbit. Active attitude control will be used to align the long (3U) axis along the orbital path, and the satellite will spin around the 3U axis to assist in thermal management. Control of the satellite and downloading of data will be via a 915-MHz radio communications system.
