Educational mission and demonstrating PocketQube technologies.


A pocketqube mission with an ARISS style APRS digipeater, a U/V FM voice repeater and technology demonstration of Arduino based FM-AFSK-AX.25 communication subsystem.

The proposed mission intends to mark 100 years of Amateur radio India and thus tries to fill the niche created after decommissioning of HAMSAT. The Mission will have a digipeater and FM voice repeater which can be used by amateur radio operators around the world depending upon the mode in which the satellite is. This will be the first pocketqube standard OSCAR and thus will push the size limit of OSCARS even lower, thus indicative of advancement in technology. The design will be open-sourced after the launch enabling further advancements and modifications by the community for future missions. 

  1. UHF-UHF repeater
  2. Technology demonstration for Lora for Amateur satellites
  3. 2MP off-the-shelf camera specifically modified to survive LEO
  4. Demonstration of low cost build method by utilising FR4 for structure.
