Headline Details: ALL-STAR is a low-cost 3U CubeSat bus capable of supporting the 1-year on-orbit operation of a variety of space-based research payloads that can be configured and ready for flight in 6 months through a simplified payload hardware and software interface. The goal is to make ALL-STAR as flexible as possible by making the subsystems and the payload interface modular and by including enough capabilities that it can be used for a wide variety of small payloads. The ALL-STAR bus includes the satellite structure, power, communications, attitude determination and control, command and data handling, and position knowledge. The first ALL-STAR payload, called THEIA, is small refractor telescope with the goal of imaging the Earth at a pixel resolution of less than 0.0017°. THEIA will send one full color image to the ground station during a communications pass. This will prove the capabilities of the ALL-STAR bus an verify the pointing requirements of the attitude control system. Planning to use S Band for the downlink and to launch on a SpaceX flight from Kennedy Space Centre to 340km with DragonSat-1, Trailblazer, PrintSat, KickSat, TSAT, PhoneSat, SporeSat, UNP-6 Radar Calibration CubeSat, NEUTRON-1 **A downlink on 2401.7MHz has been coordinated**
Application Date: 17 Dec 2012   Freq coordination completed on 06 Sep 2013
