Headline Details: A 6U CubeSat spacecraft intended to fly in an 650km polar orbit launched by Space-X in late 2015. The purposes of the mission are: - Allow the students to participate in a complete project development, with the focus on system engineering, AIT, software development, ground segment and satellite operation. One of the main purpose of the satellite is to be a tool to train students for space-related projects. - Demonstrate, technically, the use a 6U satellite as a platform to test in orbit different payloads, by developing a modular platform, where modular means the possibility to change an equipment without major changes on the overall system. For this first mission the satellite ITASAT-1 will perform five experiments in orbit: - Test a national (Brazilian) development of a data collection transponder compatible with the Brazilian Data Collection System and with the Argos System. - Test a national (Brazilian) GPS receiver. This GPS already flown in a VS-30 rocket. - Test a national (Brazilian) sensor board, with an IMU (3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis magnetometer and 3-axis gyrometer) and a gama and x ray sensor. - Test a camera for Earth imagery - Perform a communication experiment with the amateur radio community, where the satellite will be able to receive, store and forward (under request) a number of SMP messages from/to an amateur radio.Planning a BPSK downlink on 145MHz using 1k2 AX25 at 22dBm and a 14k4 BPSK downlink on S Band with 700mW to a 2dBi antenna.
