Headline Details: TARO is a 2U CubeSat developed by the National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) of Taiwan. TARO is the precursor of PACE satellite which was also developed by NCKU and has an objective to verify the function of sensors and actuators which have been used at PACE. The TARO project is developed in an educational framework and part of its objective is therefore to educate students and to promote space technology and its use to the public. We encourage and anticipate the involvement of students and radio amateurs in the mission, such as beacon and data reception and interpretation. Proposing to use a UHF system on 437.485MHz with 1k2 FSK downlink at 1 watt of output power. A Q2 2013 launch by Interorbital Systems is planned.
