First, what our Sat is capable of:

 

Ionized radiation: we have a scintillation counter, that enables us to measure the various radiation in our satellites environment.  This is significant as it enables us to detect high energy particles, radiation, and other phenomenon.

Cameras: we will use two cameras with parabolic lenses, giving us a clear 360 degree view around our satellite.

Radar: while this is a hope, but may not be feasible, we would like to have radar capabilities on our sat.  Mini radars do exist, but they are a very new technology, so it may be difficult to get our hands on it.  Radar would give us another tool for measurement, and would be among the first radars in space.

If we raise enough funds, maybe we can get a radar on our sat, and have the ability to concretely verify objects in space.
