Mission overview

Mission First of Many is comprised of assembly, programming and launch of an AMBASAT nanosatellite to study and test every step of the process.

The satellite will be deployed in LEO where it will gather temperature, gas and humidity data for approximately 3 months before deorbiting. The gathered data will be sent back to ground stations using Lo-Ra transceiver.

 

Aim of the mission is to test how compact, unshielded electronics react to the harsh space environment. We will also use the satellite to train our in-orbit tracking abilities and to test our predictive models.
