Connected by tether to research technologies for space elevator.

Description

Two 1U CubeSats having basic functions independently, and each satellite communicates with the ground station independently. The two CubeSats are connected by a tether. A climber will traverse on the deployed tether. The climber uses Bluetooth to transmit the data to a ground station via a CubeSat of STARS-Me. It will be the first time in the world that a climber traverse on a tether, and we are planning to gather the image data of the climber. Outreach activities for middle and high school students to experience communication with STARS-Me through amateur radio. We will provide an opportunity of space communications for amateur radio operators all over the world by publishing receiving frequency.
