Headline Details: A 1U Cubesat. Primary Mission: Establish ground uplink/downlink communication though primary UHF link, Providing UTEP engineering students experiences in satellite tracking and communications / telemetry concepts. Demonstrate and observe operation of printing mechanism though visual (onboard camera) and electrical continuity validation. Secondary: Command S-Band DL transmission. Acquiring OF-2 printer data, sensor data and images. Demonstrate OF-2 software reconfiguration and RTOS reset via UHF UL. The S-band downlink is a demonstration and characterization activity for an experimental s-band antenna design. Designed to work in the S-band ISM band, this activity has the potential to extend the body of knowledge about S band antennas that would potentially support amateur operations. Proposing UHF 9k6 GMSK and S Band 3-5 Mbps QPSK downlinks. Planning a launch from Wallops in October 2019 into a 460x460 km 51.69 degree orbit with HuskySat-1 and SwampSat-II.
