LILACSAT 2 is low-cost, nano-satellite for education, amateur radio communication and technology demonstration, built by a team of 15 students of Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT). It is a cube-shaped 20 cm × 20 cm × 20 cm satellite with a weight of 11 kg. LilacSat-2 provides hands-on experience for students who would not otherwise have the opportunity to build flight hardware for a space mission. The training these students gain by working on this project will better prepare them for work in the aerospace industry.
