The purpose of AubieSat-1 was to accomplish several things:

  • Establish Auburn University as a university capable of developing satellites.
  • Provide workforce applicable experience for students.
  • Study and compare the effects of solar cell coatings.
  • Demonstrate a system bus that could be used at the baseline design for additional satellites later developed by the program.
