Headline Details: TSUBAME is a 30kg class microsat planned for LEO to be launched from Japan 2011/2012. It is the fourth satellite development project undertaken within the Laboratory for Space Systems at Tokyo Institute of Technology. TSUBAME demonstrates a satellite platform that can be used for a variety of engineering and scientific missions. The missions are as follows; 1. Demonstration of satellite bus technology for 30kg-class microsatellite and verification of COTS components such as micro-processors, memory and Li-ion batteries in the space environment 2. Verification of Control Moment Gyros developed by the Laboratory for Space Systems 3. Demonstration of high-speed attitude manoeuvres technology using Control Moment Gyros. Some sensor data acquisition experiments will be conducted at the same time in order to demonstrate applications of CMGs. 4. Demonstration of SRLL communication protocol developed by Tokyo Institute of Technology and high-speed GMSK data downlink 5. Data collection experiment through internet with the aid of radio amateurs all over the world Proposing to use VHF for telecommand and UHF for telemetry downlink and a CW beacon. CW Beacon coordinated on 437.250MHz and AX25 Telemetry on 437.505MHZ More info available at http://lss.mes.titech.ac.jp/ssp/tsubame/abst_e.html
