Education space systems engineering with focus on ADCS and gamma-ray experiment.
Education. By participating in the project students gets involved in the complicated process of building a complex system like a satellite. This teaches the student to work together in small groups and, at the same time, coordinate their actions with other groups.
The primary "technical" mission is to get one-way communication with the satellite, and next is establish two-way communication.
The satellite caries two science experiments, an ADCS system and a gamma ray detector, that will be activated when two-way communication is established. The primary goal for the ADCS system is to detumble the satellite, but it can also actively control of the satellites attitude in space, utilizing coils and momentum wheels. The gamma ray detector is made by DSRI and it will detect gamma ray bursts from outer space.
