Headline Details: This voluntary project consists entirely of undergraduate students at the Arizona State University. Its primary objective is self-training ie learning by doing. The students are learning about satellites and space communication by designing, building, launching (by NASA through its ELaNa program) and operating a 3U Cubesat. It carries an earth-imaging system to study urban heat islands such as Phoenix, Arizona which is the secondary objective. Command, control and telemetry are on UHF using FSK up to 115Kbps and the earth-imaging data are downlinked in the 2.4 GHz band using QPSK up to 2Mbps. Planning a Nanoracks deployment from the ISS. Phoenix will launch as part of the ELaNa-21 mission with the following CubeSats on November 8, 2018 CapSat, TJREVERB, CySat1, TechEdSat-8, Virginia CC (three 1Us), SPACE HAUC, SPOC, and RadSat-u. **Downlinks on 437.350 MHz and 2402.500 MHz have been coordinated**
Application Date: 28 Dec 2017   Freq coordination completed on 25 Jan 2018
