On 20 November 2015 the contract for the basic subsystems for MIST was signed with ISIS – Innovative Solutions In Space. This company is one of the pioneers of the Cubesat era and is located in Delft, the Netherlands.
The contract includes the following items:
- Onboard computer
- Power conditioning and distribution
- Battery pack
- Solar panels
- Onboard antenna
The plan is to procure other equipment later. For example, the onboard radio will be procured when the exact radio frequencies are known.
