Headline Details: Like most TUB missions, TUBIN has objectives in research and education: Research: The TUBIN mission’s primary research objective is the demonstration of fire detection in the thermal infrared spectrum from low earth orbit on a microsatellite with cameras based on bolometer technology. To achieve this the TUBIN spacecraft carries two bolometer cameras for the thermal infrared and a single camera in the visual spectrum for referencing the infrared images. Secondary research goal is the further development of Technische Universität Berlin’s TUBiX20 satellite platform for nanosatellites and especially its attitude determination and control system. Both research activities are not aiming to sell data or provide commercial services, they are solely conducted out of research interest. Education: TUB actively trains and educates researchers and students in satellite operations. The amateur UHF com system will be used for this purpose. UHF operations will be carried out by amateur licensees or under their supervision using educational licenses. Part of the operations will be conducted in lectures on satellite operations. The spacecraft has an octagonal shape with a diameter of 450mm, a height of 300mm and a mass of 23kg. Proposing a UHF downlink using 4k8 or 9k6 GMSK. For more info see: https://www.ilr.tu-berlin.de/menue/home/parameter/en/ All information necessary to receive and decode telemetry will be made available prior to launch under: https://www.raumfahrttechnik.tu-berlin.de/menue/amateur_radio/ Generally the format equals that of TechnoSat (already published) and will only deviate in the description of some packets/values, while most will be. The description provided before launch will clearly separate between similarities and differences. Planning a launch from Plesetsk in Q4 2020 into a 500-600km SSO **A downlink on 435.950 MHz has been coordinated** **Now expected to launch from Cape Canaveral on 24th June 2021**
Application Date: 16 Mar 2020   Freq coordination completed on 12 Nov 2020
