General function of space object:

DTUsat-1 was built by students at Technical University of Denmark and as such provided a platform for hands on teaching of space technology and systems engineering. The student satellites primary mission was to test an electrodynamical tether to be used as a tool for space debris mitigation. The tether would reduce deorbiting time. Secondary payloads were a camera and the successful MEMS based sun-sensor. The sensor has now flown on 6 missions. Contact was never established with DTUsat-1.
