QARMAN is the ”QubeSat for Aerothermodynamic Research and Measurements on AblatioN” of VKI, Developed in the framework of the QB50 project. The QARMAN project goals are threefold: First, it will demonstrate the possibility of non-powered rendez-vous in cooperation with the Belgian university of Liege. Next, it will demonstrate the use of a passive de-orbiting system and finally, it will collect scientific data during its entry to earth’s atmosphere. Therefore, atmospheric entry and associated aerothermodynamics phenomena are considered as critical research topics for the safety of the spacecraft. The QARMAN project aims at creating an affordable platform to perform scientific studies in these fields.
