|Please explain the purpose of operation:
EQUiSats primary mission is to serve as an in-orbit validation of accessible and affordable space design to bring space closer to the masses. With novel in-house design techniques, cost-efficient construction, and open source technical documentation, EQUiSat represents the future of low-cost CubeSat design. EQUiSats secondary mission is to test lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries that have never been flown in space before. These batteries will power EQUiSats high-power LED array, which will serve as a beacon, allowing viewers on the ground to spot the satellite, even from urban areas. The beacon will flash from Low Earth Orbit with an apparent magnitude of 2, approximately the same intensity as Polaris. Observers will also be able to hear EQUiSat, via an onboard UHF transceiver that will transmit a signal that can be easily tracked by amateur radio operators, universities, and grade schools. Individuals will be able to monitor the satellites telemetry, relationship to the sun, and valuable sensor data.
