Educational mission with star tracker and S-band radio.


Educational purpose experiment. To improve both CubeSat platform and ground station in the university.

It is the first time to setup S-Band system in NCKU. Students can learn about each sub-system of CubeSat and the dish-like antenna operation on ground station.

Homemade Star tracker from university. It could provide more accurate attitude information to ADCS.

IRIS-C provides FM digipeater, allowing the operator to upload data packet (145.860MHz) with desired retransmit delay time. The FM digipeater receives a packet of data, stores it in internal memory and then a moment later retransmits it on UHF (436.915MHz) or S- Band (2420MHz).
