The primary mission of CP6 is to implement an attitude control system using
only magnetic torquers embedded within the side panels. Attitude determination
is performed using two-axis magnetometers on each side panel as well as
observation imagers on the payload face.
Once the primary objectives have been met, a command will be sent to deploy the
secondary payload that consists of a series of spring steel tapes (built by
NRL). The data will be used to guide the future design of an electrodynamic
