American technology satellite. 3 launched, 2006.03.22 (ST5-A) to (ST5-C).

Status: Operational 2006. First Launch: 2006-03-22. Last Launch: 2006-03-22. Number: 3 . Gross mass: 22 kg (48 lb).

Space Technology 5, one of NASA's New Millennium Program projects, consisted of three small spacecraft, each a half meter in each dimension, with a small extensible magnetometer boom. Study of the magnetosphere was however secondary to the Nanosat Constellation Trailblazer technology mission. This was to demonstrate fully functional nanosatellites, which included a cold gas microthruster and miniaturized telemetry/command and power systems.
