Headline Details: A 2U CubeSat. The overall goal of the University of California – Berkeley QubeSat mission, is to research the effects of space environment on a quantum gyroscope based on NV– centers in diamond. NV– centers in diamond can be used to create gyroscopes, magnetometers, and other sensors. These sensors could support better attitude determination systems for cubesats, including Amateur cubesats. QubeSat will allow members of the student group to engage in satellite operations and learn about satellite communication through design and operation of radio systems. This mission also aims to grow the community around the OpenLST transceiver, an open-source radio design proven in use by Planet Labs, which is also planned to be flown by several other university CubeSat projects. The OpenLST uses the TI CC1101 packet structure, supported by the accompanying OpenLST software. This packet format can be decoded by anyone since it is well documented, so it could be useful to the amateur satellite community. The decoding method will be available on our website. QubeSat will grow the community by collaborating with other CubeSat projects planning to use the OpenLST, as well as by providing additional documentation based on our experience.
