The main payload of the TUGSAT-1/BRITE-Austria satellite will be a photometric instrument. Its task is to observe oscillations in brightness of specific groups of stars. The frequencies of the oscillations may provide information concerning size, age and core composition of the star.


More information on the Photometric Instrument and on the astronomical issues can be found on the BRITE-Constellation website of the University of Vienna.
