The challenge

PROBLEM #1: Limited data coverage of the middle layers of the atmosphere, relying heavily on remote observation.
PROBLEM #2: Cubesat satellites are lacking independent propulsion means.

The solution

D-Orbit Atmosphere Analyzer will provide higher accuracy for meteorological and telecom predictions. With the data provided the weather prediction time may be increased, giving more time to the population to adjust to incoming weather forecasts. This has very powerful social effects, as people might have a longer time-frame to prepare themselves and their assets. In the telecommunications field, a better understanding of the environment will help to boost the efficiency.
