STRAND 1 is a 9.4-pound (4-kg) triple-CubeSat satellite, the world's first satellite with a smartphone-based computer. STRaND-1 is also packed with a multitude of experimental systems that will allow it to do all sorts of exciting things when in orbit. STRaND-1 will have no less than 4 means of manoeuvring. It is equipped with magnetorquers and reaction wheels as well as some brand new propulsion systems: the WARP DRiVE and 8 Pulsed Plasma Thrusters. The Cubesat will also carry a total of four cameras: two to help orientate the satellite (the sun sensor and nadir sensor seen in the image below), the phone camera that will shoot photos of Earth and a final one (also seen in the image) that will show us what the phone is doing in orbit.
