- Analysing the utilasition of TCP/IP-techniques for telemetrical and telecommand data with consideration of typical aerospace problems like delay and disturbance
- Implementing a Groundstation and invoking it into a international network of CubeSat users via Internet
- Potentially testing of microsystem components for attitude determination (gyro, determination of declination/inclination)
Results achieved by UWE-1 are presented in 3 papers at the "57th International Astronautical Congress" in Valencia, Spain.
