MOVE CubeSat project

The Munich Orbital Verification Experiment (MOVE) programme has been initiated in 2006 and reached its first milestone with launch of the student-built satellite platform First-MOVE. Nanosatellite research and development within MOVE is conducted by students at various academic levels. While development of First-MOVE has been concluded and the CubeSat launched into orbit, ongoing work and research is focussed on its successor, MOVE-Ⅱ.
