Educational amateur radio mission with a camera.

Description

Satellite RTU MIREA1 of CubeSat 3U form factor is designed.

  • For educational activities within the SpaceTT project;
  • For interaction with radio amateurs all over the world (call sign - RS51S);

On board the small satellite RTU MIREA1 is installed a payload consisting of:

  1. Optical camera of the visible range, which will provide images of the surface for the purpose of solving meteorological problems;
  2. A receiver of signals of global navigation satellite systems GLONASS/GPS. The use of a such receiver for the signals of global navigation satellite systems GLONASS/GPS satellite systems will allow to know the coordinates of the spacecraft and to study the influence of the ionosphere on the propagation of navigation signals,
  3. Transceiver module, which is necessary for the organization of the experiment on inter- satellite communication with the TUSUR-GO satellite.

The mission of the RTU MIREA1 satellite is to conduct three experiments:

  1. Study the underlying surface, in particular the Earth cloud cover. Radio amateurs will be able to obtain images of the underlying surface in their radio coverage area.
  2. Study of the influence of the ionosphere on the signals of the global navigation satellite systems GLONASS/GPS. Radio amateurs will be able to obtain the coordinates of the RTU spacecraft MIREA1.
  3. Inter-satellite communication, which is provided with the TUSUR-GO spacecraft. Knowing the coordinates of the RTU MIREA1 satellite, radio amateurs will be able to ensure the planning of inter-satellite communication sessions between satellites.
