Headline Details: ESSENCE (Educational Space Science and ENgineering CubeSat Experiment) is a 3U CubeSat supported by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA). The primary objective is centered on the training of high-quality personnel with professional skills in space science and technology, and inspiring young students to pursue STEM programs with a focus on space. The secondary goal is to conduct scientific and technological experiments in space by the low-cost and quick-turn-around CubeSat platform. The technological experiment concerns a novel attitude control theory and algorithm of spacecraft, while the scientific experiment is to observe Earth’s environment by monitoring arctic ice, permafrost thaw, and forests from the vantage point of ISS, and to investigate the space weather by measuring energetic solar protons. Proposing a UHF downlink using 9k6 GMSK with AX25 and CCSDS packet structures. Planning a Nanoracks deployment from the ISS in Q2 2022.
