Vu Trong Thu and his team build a cube sat that will launch with IOS as well, and we got to know him during the UNOOSA conference in Graz in 2010.

Planned orbital operations of F-1 CubeSat:

•Deploy antennas, begin beacon transmission
•Collect telemetry data (battery voltage, temperatures) and transmit
•Take photos of the Earth and transmit
•Test 3-axis magnetometer

Lifetime: only a few months (depends on solar activities and atmospheric conditions)
