During 2015, the Prox-1 team completed a set of system-level tests focused on demonstrating the functionality required to meet minimum mission success criteria. The minimum mission includes on-orbit spacecraft checkout of all spacecraft subsystems, including flight qualification of the following new technologies the Honeybee Robotics Microsatellite CMG unit, the University of Texas at Austin 3D printed cold-gas propulsion unit, and the Arizona State University visible and infrared imagers. The minimum mission also includes deployment of LightSail-B from the P-POD, and imaging of LightSail-B for 20 minutes as it recedes from Prox-1.
