Off-the-shelf commercial smartphone as the control system for the satellite and other technology demonstrations.
Off-the-shelf commercial smartphone as the control system for the satellite and used a UHF radio beacon to transmit data and images to the ground.
The technology objective was to demonstrate the application of consumer electronics as the basis of an extremely low-cost satellite bus. 12 lithium-ion batteries, a Nexus One running the Android 2.3.3 and a StenSat radio at 437.425 MHz. Has an accelerometer and a magnetometer.
On day 1, Bell and Graham transmitted health data (battery levels, temperatures, magnetometer sensors, accelerometer sensors). On day 2 (and beyond) Bell and Graham took 100 pictures.
