…next round of cubesat deployments begins on ISS


A new set of cubesats will be released tomorrow, December 19th, 2016.

For the deployment, the Japanese robotic arm moves the deployer to a specific position to ensure the satellites depart on a safe trajectory with no risk of re-contact with ISS on any subsequent orbits after which drag will have separated ISS and the much smaller CubeSats.
Here is a list of the CubeSats on Japan’s payload manifest, with descriptions offered by JAXA :

AOBA-Velox 3 – from the Kyushu Institute of Technology in Japan and the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, will evaluate the performance of a pulsed plasma thruster
TuPOD – from the Italian company GAUSS, will attempt deployment of two daughter nanosatellites from Brazilian and U.S. builders
ITF-2 – from the University of Tsukuba, will connect amateur radio users
STARS-C – from Shizuoka University, will attempt to extend a tether between two 1U CubeSats
WASEDA-SAT 3 – from Waseda University, will also deploy a “film-type” de-orbiting device and project an image onto the film surface using a micro-miniature projector

PSLV launch – Athenoxat-1


Launch on 16 Dec 2015, 12:30 UTC from Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) Shriharikota

A PSLV C-29 will launch six satellites from Singapore into a 550 km circular orbit inclined at 15 degrees to the equator.
TeLEOS-1 is the primary satellite and the other five satellites Kent Ridge-1, VELOX-C1, VELOX-II, Gallassia and Athanoxat-1 are co-passenger satellites.

Athenoxat-1, a 3U Cubesat has a CW beacon transmitting on 437.485 Mhz
Athenoxat-1 seperation from PSLV at 12:51:02 UTC and would starting sending CW message 30 minutes after separation
CW message will be “ATX1” on 437.485 MHz every 1 minute and also with an indication of battery voltage.

Reception reports are welcome and could be sent to giulio.manzoni@micro-space.org
