Headline Details: AggieSat4 will conduct on-orbit evaluations of NASA GPS hardware and AggieSat-lab designed attitude determination and control hardware and software. These tests will help AggieSat Lab develop autonomous rendezvous and docking technology for microsatellites. ** A downlink frequency of 436.250MHz has been coordinated** ** Deployment from the iSS is now expect at approx 1025UTC on January 29th 2016. Transmissions are expected to commence 10 minutes later** AggieSat4 will be transported to the International Space Station aboard SpaceX 5, and will be released from the ISS into orbit. AggieSat4 will be launched with a partner spacecraft, The University of Texas’ “Bevo-2”. The two spacecraft will conduct proximity operations to develop autonomous rendezvous and docking technology. Bevo-2 is outside the scope of this application. AggieSat4 is a 61x61x28 cm box of 50kg mass. Proposing a UHF downlink using 5 watts of 9k6 FSK with telemetry also on UHF but using 153.6kbps FSK.
