Michigan Tech was selected to fly their CubeSat as an auxiliary payload on a launch between 2017 and 2019. The Michigan Tech satellite, named Stratus, is designed to be a low-cost solution for measuring cloud fraction, cloud top height, and cloud top wind. This mission is traditionally performed by large dedicated Earth-observing spacecraft.
