Mimosa was the 6. czech satellite following the Magion 1-5 satellites.

MIMOSA stands for Micromeasurements of Satellite Acceleration. 

The objective of th MIMOSA satellite is to measure atmospheric drag and other non-gravitional origin forces. Therefore the satellites must be of a very regular sharpe and the measuring device had to be placed in it's center of gravity.
