Headline Details: A 1U CubeSat mission. The RHOK-SAT project has two objectives: educational and scientific. The educational (primary) objective is to give students hands-on learning on the mechanical, software, and RF engineering involved with satellite development. Its scientific (secondary) objective is to collect data on perovskite solar cells and assess their hardiness in orbit over time. Our satellite carries a transponder which will be enabled on weekends and after the end of the scientific (research) mission to give amateur radio operators all over the globe the ability to communicate. We also intend to involve local ham radio operators to volunteer in our ground station development and operation. Proposing a UHF downlink using 9k6 G3RUH modulation. Planning Nanoracks launch to the ISS at the end of 2023.
