Educational amateur radio mission with orbital edge computing elements.


A 1P PocketQube satellite developed by Carnegie Mellon University. The sensor-equipped, 5 cm cube can sense its environment and perform orbital edge computing to process sensor data in a way that is robust to intermittent operation. This design is the university’s latest picosatellite building from the CMU’s open-sourced Tartan-Artibeus-1 project, that was the world’s first batteryless, computational PocketQube satellite.
