TIGRISAT is an Iraqi 3U CubeSat built by Iraqi students at the La Sapienza University of Rome with a mission to detect dust storms over Iraq. The 3U cubesat features a RGB camera with a new scripted algorithm for dust detection. It has a deployable VHF/UHF antenna for telemetry telecommand and beacon and a S-Band antenna. Embedded magnetic coils inside solar panels provide attitude control to enable nadir pointing. Tigrisat transmits images to two ground stations, one located in Rome and another in Baghdad.
