Headline Details: A 2U CubeSat. Our mission is to measure plasma electron density in the upper F layer of the ionosphere, between 400 km to 800 km altitude, in the equatorial and mid latitudes. The development and construction of JAGSAT is primarily handled by the 50+ undergraduate students involved in the project. The project has introduced these students to the art of amateur radio communications and during the flight mission will be used as an educational tool to explain amateur radio principles and theory. Pursuit of radio science regarding properties of the ionosphere. Amateur operators will be able to coordinate with University of South Alabama to develop space weather monitoring tools, specifically to understand and predict the effects of RF scintillation on amateur or other communication signals, in furtherance to the radio art with respect to exploiting the ionosphere. Proposing a UHF downlink using 9k6 2-GFSK modulation with AX25. Planning a deployment from the ISS with other ELANA-37 missions in Q2 2022. **A downlink on 437.325 MHz has been coordinated**
Application Date: 13 Feb 2021   Freq coordination completed on 18 Feb 2021
