Platform for students and space enthusiasts to run space-based Arduino experiments.

Description

Mission is to provide a platform on which students and DIY space enthusiasts may design and run their own space-based Arduino experiments. Identical with ArduSat-1. The Arduino processors may sample data from the satellite’s imaging payload, a 1.3 megapixel optical CMOS camera module, and / or any of the satellite’s onboard sensors, which includes photolux sensor, IR temperature, PCB temperature, 3-axis magnetometer, Geiger counter, 6-DOF IMU, and MEMS gyros.
