Headline Details: Designed to understand protoplanetary growth, QPACE is a 3U CubeSat that is scheduled to launch on ELaNa XX in December 2017 with a nominal mission duration of 3 years. Q-PACE will perform over 100 collision experiments producing 10’s of thousands of collisions simulating the first steps in planet formation. Q-PACE consists of a particle chamber that is shaken to induce low-speed collisions between the particles that cannot be achieved in Earth’s gravity. The collisional evolution of the swarm of particles is captured by a high-speed video camera. The video data is transmitted to the ground station for analysis to measure the outcomes of collisions based on impact speed and particle type. A downlink 2412.500 MHz with emission designator 1M25F1D, output power 2 Watt, antenna gain 6 dBi; has been coordinated. Planning a ELaNA launch not earlier than Dec 2017. ** An additional downlink on 437.275 MHz using 9k6 FSK has been coordinated**
Application Date: 02 Feb 2017   Freq coordination completed on 15 Feb 2017
