Headline Details: A 1p Pocketcube. Our project consist of following missions: 1. Enhancing public understanding of space and encouraging students in our country to undertake space related initiatives. We plan to achieve this through: Conducting hands-on workshops for the youth to spark their interest in space and amateur radio. Activities will include lectures on satellites—their functions, construction, and communication methods. Participants will have the opportunity to build a simple Yagi antenna and use it to transmit a group photograph to our spacecraft. This photo will then be displayed and photographed in orbit, all under the guidance of a licensed amateur radio operator. Increasing public awareness by leveraging social media and the spacecraft's selfie camera and screen. One example campaign involves partnering with non-profit organizations to display photos, provided by individuals who donate a certain amount to their cause, on the satellite screen. This approach aims to utilize our equipment to do something good for the world. We are open for further discussion about what types of campaigns will be allowed and creating guidelines on what can or can’t be shown on screen. 2. Gaining practical experience in operating scientific instruments on satellites through practical experiments, such as Earth's spectroscopy in the visible and near-infrared spectrum using an onboard spectrometer. The data collected will be made available on our website. 3. In orbit validation of a spacecraft completely developed by students, including a communication subsystem where we want to experiment with downlink with different baud rates and forward error correction to gain knowledge of satellite communication in practice. 4. Enhancing our team knowledge of the practical aspects of satellite missions, preparing for future satellite projects at our university. 5. Promoting satellite-related amateur radio activities Proposing a UHF downlink using LoRa modulation in 125 kHz channel with Modulation parameters: Spreading factor 7, Code rate 4/5, explicit header mode, CRC Enabled. Equivalent data rate: 5468 bps Planning a SpaceX launch from Vandenberg NET 1st Oct 2024 into a 525 km polar orbit.
