Headline Details: GOMX-1 is a 2U cubesat.The mission is being flown under the auspices of a Government research grant covering space related radio research. It will qualify a number of subsystems and provide extensive in-flight data. A large number of future amateur and cubesat missions depend on the important data that will be generated by this mission. This will help these mission teams across the globe to achieve higher reliability and improved utilization. Secondly, the mission will test the use of the open source Cubesat Space Protocol (http://code.google.com/p/cubesat-space-protocol/) for a complete mission including the space link. Thirdly, a camera payload will take color images of the Earth. Finally, an experimental Software Defined Radio receiver will be carried and its performance characterized. More than 15 students at Aalborg University have been actively involved in the development of this payload as part of their semester projects. It is planning to use GMSK telemetry with selectable 1k2/2k4/4k8/9k6 rates on UHF with approx 28dBm power to a deployed antenna. Launch is expected in late 2012 into a near sun syncronous orbit on a DNEPR rocket from Yasny in Russia with a number of other cubesats. ** A downlink of 437.250MHz has been coordinated**
