This paper describes the on-orbit results and lessons-learned of the small scientific satellite "INDEX" (REIMEI) for aurora observation and demonstration of advanced satellite technologies. INDEX is a small satellite with 72kg mass, and is provided with three-axis attitude controll capabilities for aurora observation. INDEX was launched into a nearly sun synchronous polar orbit on Aug. 23rd, 2005 (UT) from Baikonur, Kazakhstan by Dnepr rocket. INDEX satellite has been satisfactorily working on the orbit for 24 months at present of August,2007. Three axis control is achieved with accuracy of 0.1 deg(3 σ). Multi-spectrum images of aurora are taken with 8Hz rate and 2 km spatial resolution to investigate the aurora physics. INDEX is performing the simultaneous observation of aurora images and particle measurements. INDEX indicates that even a small satellite launched as a piggy-back can successfully perform unique scientific mission purposes. Copyright IAF/IAA. All rights reserved.
