AOXIANG-1 is a 2U-CubeSat launched with the bulk of the QB50 constellation to the ISS, designed and built at the Shaanxi Engineering Laboratory (SELM), Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU). The orbiter has science payload for lower thermosphere detection, three axis MagneTorQuers (MTQ), three axis reaction wheels, On Board Computer (OBC), communication system, Electrical Power System (EPS) and etc. The main mission of AOXIANG-1 is for lower thermosphere research. The satellite carries a Science Unit (SU) named INMS (Ion/Neutral Mass Spectrometer) for sampling of low mass ionized and neutral particles in lower thermosphere, such as O, O2, and N2. The second mission is focusing on the methods of improving the reliability of CubeSat that is based on commercial off-the-shelf (COTs) components.
