Headline Details: A 2U CubeSat, LUME-1 is a technological and educational mission funded by European Commission within the FIRE-RS project (Interreg SUDOE). The main goal of the mission is to involve students and researchers in the development of a bidirectional communication system based on cubesats. The system is an evolution of the Humsat system tested in previous missions of the University of Vigo (Humsat-D, SERPENS). The system will be used to demonstrate its application in the notification of wildfire alarms from sensors installed on the forests. As an additional goal, telecommunication engineering PhD students will test a software defined radio platform that can be used for several applications: low-data rate communication, reception of ADS-B signals, characterization of interference sources… The software defined radio will be used also to test new modulations and services for the radio amateurs. Experiments and waveforms will be uploaded during flight. Proposing to use a UHF downlink with GFSK at 1k2 to 9k6 data rates. Planning a SOyuz launch from Vostochny Cosmodrome on 25/12/2018 into a 550km SSO. **A downlink on 437.060 MHz has been coordinated**
Application Date: 16 Oct 2018   Freq coordination completed on 10 Apr 2019
