Educational mission and radio amateur repeater payload.


Educational proof of concept and satellite bus demonstrator. We are using this mission as an opportunity for undergraduates to get involved in all parts of a space mission, from design to implementation and sustainment.

  • We will test a prototype deployable antenna and solar panels, which can be used for future missions derived from the same baseline design, and with inclusion of additional experimental equipment.
  • We will operate with AX.25 protocol to collect telemetry data.
  • In partnership with the W4AQL Georgia Tech Amateur Radio Club, the satellite will also host a digital contact ROBOT payload, inspired by the Russian ham satellites RS-12 and RS-13.
  • We will collect QSO information from individuals who contact the ROBOT as it orbits. The satellite will also function as a standard digipeater.
