Prisma is a satellite project led by the Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) which consist of two satellites that fly in formation.[1]

It was launched, along with the PICARD spacecraft, on 15 June 2010 on a Dnepr-1 launcher from Dombarovskiy Cosmodrome, near Yasny, Russia. Its primary objective is to test autonomous formation flying.[1][2] A secondary objective was to flight test a new monopropellant thruster using Ammonium DiNitramide (ADN) propellant.[3]

On 12 August 2010, SSC reported that the two satellites, called Mango and Tango, had separated from each other for the first time.[4]
