CANYVAL-X: CubeSat Astronomy by NASA and Yonsei using Virtual Telescope Alignment eXperiment

  • Released Tuesday, October 13, 2015

CANYVAL-X is a technology demonstration CubeSat Mission with a primary objective of validating technologies that allow two spacecraft to fly in formation along an inertial line-of-sight (i.e., align two spacecraft to an inertial source). Demonstration of precision dual-spacecraft alignment achieving fine angular precision enables a variety of cutting-edge heliophysics and astrophysics.
