Headline Details: A 1P PocketQube. Primary Mission Objective: i. To collect multiple sensor data from sensor nodes and forward the data to the Amateur Radio ground station. ii. To demonstrate the capability of the ground station and data centre at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) to receive data from satellites and forward it to the users. iii. To provide training and hands-on experience to the Amateur Radio community in Malaysia on the usage of LoRa technology for satellite communication. Secondary Missions Objectives: i. To demonstrate LoRa modulation in satellite store and forward application. ii. To demonstrate PocketQubes capability in providing a low-cost space platform for store and forward application. iii. To provide education and hands-on experience related to satellite operation to USM student. The global amateur operators will be able to receive housekeeping and mission data from the sensor nodes. Each sensor nodes are equipped with microcontrollers, sensors, transceiver, and solar panels. It will be placed in remote areas where conventional IoT devices is not reachable. Additionally, the mission will also give authorization to the Amateur operators in Malaysia to uplink their callsigns for other amateur services around the globe to receive it in non-real time. The uplinked callsign will be saved into the satellite?s flash memory and downlinked back after some predetermined time. However, this operation will be under control and permission of the satellite owner (USM). Proposing a UHF downlink using CW and 1k2 GFSK with AX25.
