CATSat (Cooperative Astrophysics and Technology Satellite)
A small scientific satellite developed jointly by the University of New
Hampshire and the University of Leicester, England, through the USRA
(Universities Space Research Association)/NASA STEDI
(Student Explorer Demonstration Initiative) program. It was to have studied
the origin of gamma-ray bursters
from a 550km circular polar orbit and had been scheduled for launch in December
2001 aboard a Delta 7310 alongside ICESat.
However, the mission was cancelled before launch.
