The HAMS (Hi-Accuracy Measurement System for precise formation flying) is responsible for measuring the distance between the two satellites to micrometer accuracy so that they are effectively flying joined to each other, even though there is no physical connection.

It is expected that this technology will  allow smaller satellites to be launched from earth independently and then joined in space to form larger structures or platforms such as large telescopes. We also expect to exploit potential terrestrial applications for this technology.
