Educational capability development mission with X-Ray Detector (iXRD) and camera payloads.

Description

Payload is an X-Ray Detector (iXRD) and a visual band camera system. The aim is to measure the X-Rays from outer space and taking with at least 100 meter/pixel GSD pictures of Earth. There will be an S-Band transmitter to download the pictures taken by the cameras and the iXRD data. The satellite is being developed by University of Sharjah SAASST together with Istanbul Technical University, Faculty of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Space Systems Design and Test Lab (SSDTL) along with Sabancı University for iXRD.
The integration and assembly of the CubeSat components are carried out inside SAASST’s cleanroom, which will assure the protection of the sensitive electronics and instruments. The initial tests are also being performed in the cleanroom, but the qualification and acceptance tests that require specialized facilities are done at other sites. Once SharjahSat-1 is in orbit, SAASST’s ground station will be used for communication (Telemetry, Tracking, and Commanding).
