PROMETHEUS 2-3 and PROMETHEUS 2-1 satellites (Prometheus Block 2) are developed and operated by the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and follow up on a successful series of missions of eight Block 1 satellites and the Perseus program. Their primary purpose is the demonstration of low-cost satellites in a feasibility study of CubeSat applications in communications between remote field sites and ground station terminals in a store-and-forward environment. Each of the 1.5U CubeSats is manufactured for less than $100,000 and features four deployable solar panels, an active attitude control system with stellar sensors, and a Software Defined Radio with a footprint sufficiently small for tactical operations.
