Headline Details: The CELESTA project consists in developing a 1U CubeSat based system to monitor the LEO environment and perform in-orbit testing of the 1U CubeSat platform developed by the UM. The satellite payload is a module including a radiation monitor “RadMon” and a SEL (Single Event Latch-up) experiment, both developed by CERN. CELESTA (CERN Latch-up Experiment Student Satellite) mission consist in: developing and flying a space version of CERN radiation monitor (RadMon) coupled with a latch-up experiment; showing that the space radiation environment of Low Earth Orbit can be reproduced in the CERN High energy Accelerator Mixed field facility (CHARM). This would open the use for space system qualification activities, and provide a radiation monitor module for future missions. The second mission of the MT-Cube satellite is to demonstrate the good functionality of the upgraded ROBUSTA-1U platform. The third mission of the MT-Cube platform is to reemit in the broadcast “tweets” addressed to the ham radio community. Proposing a UHF downlink using 9k6 FSK with AX25.
