STEM outreach by sending live video space-to-ground stations plus camera.


STEM outreach by sending live video space-to-ground to tracking stations built and operated by high schools. This CubeSat will use a reaction wheel system for attitude control and pointing of the onboard camera, and high-gain antennas. Everything is open source.

The mission is to provide flight heritage to the "OreSat bus", an open source card-cage based system that is ideally suited for education CubeSat projects involving interdisciplinary teams of students. The spacecraft is the predecessor to the OreSat-1 satellite, providing flight heritage to its critical subsystems.
