CUTE-1.7 + APD (Cubical Tokyo Tech Engineering satellite 1.7) or CO-56 (Cubesat-Oscar-56) is an amateur radio nanosatellite in the form of a double CubeSat. The satellite uses commercial off-the-shelf components extensively, in particular, using the Hitachi NPD-20JWL PDA as a control computer, and using a USB hub for sensor communications. At the end of its mission, the satellite will deploy an electrodynamic tether to help it deorbit.

On March 16, 2006, the communication system malfunctioned so that it is transmitting unmodulated carrier wave and unable to communicate.[1]
