Headline Details: QB50 is a network of 50 CubeSats that will be launched together in a ‘string-of-pearls’ configuration to provide in-situ measurements of the lower thermosphere/ionosphere. Additionally, QB50 allows technology demonstration of cubesats by a large number of teams, on a shared launch. The UCLSat is a 2U CubeSat to be launched as part of the QB50 mission. UCLSat will provide demonstration of in-house technology development and will carry two payloads to monitor the space environment. The first, Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS) is a common instrument across a number of the QB50 satellites. The second contains a suite of sensors to analyse the energetic particle and magnetic field environment. Data from these instruments will be transmitted to ground. The space station will primarily be used to downlink the data from UCLSat and other potential partner CubeSats participating in the QB50 mission. Planning to use 9k6 GMSK downlink on UHF. ** A revised downlink on 435.975MHz has been coordinated**
Application Date: 29 Oct 2014   Freq coordination completed on 18 Jun 2015
