Headline Details: DSM-BARC is a 2U CubeSat developed by the University of Michigan. The primary objective is to raise the technology readiness level of the EPS, CDH and communications systems in a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit. The satellite is a 2U CubeSat compatible with the Tyvak NLAS Mk.ll deployer. The satellite is 227mm x 100mm x 100mm in size while stowed and has a mass of 1.28 kg (Max: 2.66 kg). There is one deployable reflective panel on the 227mm (Negative X Face) long face of the satellite that will deploy at a once in orbit, as well as the deployable UHF antenna, which will deploy out of the same face. The satellite will tumble in orbit and does not have an attitude control or stabilization system. Proposing a UHF downlink using 9k6 GMSK and AX25. Planning a launch from Cape Canaveral on an ULA flight with initial parameters of Apogee – 35786 km Perigee – 185 km Inclination – 27 deg Period – 10.5 hrs. Fellow payloads are expected to be from: CubeSats from University of Texas, University of Louisiana and Purdue University More info available at http://m-barc.com/our-story/ and http://www.ulalaunch.com/ula-announces-2016-cubesat-stem-winners.aspx **A 437.485 MHz has been coordinated**
