TWOi is a tertiary payload and is packed inside the Kicksat deployer satellite which is a cubesat that is being launched as part of NASA’s Educational Launch Program. The Kicksat deployer satellite is packed on board a Cygnus space ship that is taking 4.5 tons of supplies to the International Space Station.
The Cygnus will make the journey to the ISS and dock with it. TWOi and Kicksat will remain on board the Cyngus while the supplies are unloaded and the Cygnus is repacked with items that will return to Earth.
Sometime towards the end of Feb 2019 or beginning of March 2019 Cygnus will undock from the ISS and perform a series of maneuvers to deploy all the cubesats including Kicksat. 2 days after Kicksat has been deployed it will deploy TWOi and all it’s other pico-satellites.
TWOi and Kicksat will be on a rapidly descending orbit and are scheduled to re-enter within a week following deployment.
