UKube-1

Dauriya Aerospace UKube-1

UKube-1 is the UK Space Agency ‘s pilot programme to design and launch a (3U) CubeSat – a miniaturized (30x10x10 cm) satellite that will enable the UK to demonstrate new technologies in space. UKube-1 was designed and built by Clyde Space Ltd in Glasgow and will be the first Scottish-built satellite to launch.

UKube-1

The UKube-1 mission is an exciting collaboration between industry and academia, and is the pathfinder for a potential national CubeSat programme. It is hoped that this project will increase the UK’s ability to market new space technologies, as well as provide hands on experience for future scientists and engineers.
UKube-1 will fly six payloads built by UK industry and academia. The UKube-1 ground segment consists of Chilbolton ground station which will control the satellite, and the UKube-1 Mission Operations Centre (UMOC) at RAL. Following the successful launch on 8 July, the ground station at the Chilbolton Observatory has received telemetry from the satellite.

With regard to the AMSAT-UK FUNcube-2 sub-system carried by the satellite the UKSA say:
“As well as providing a fantastic opportunity for innovative UK companies and UK academics to collaborate on a national space project, UKube-1 is also useful for training the next generation of space engineers and includes an education payload intended to support STEM initiatives. The payload consists of a tiny radio transmitter for science education and a materials science experiment from which school students can receive data which can be compared to results obtained from similar reference experiments in the classroom. The system, funded by volunteer members and friends of AMSAT-UK, is called FUNcube-2.”

Launch

A Russian Soyuz 2-1B rocket has successfully launched the Meteor M2 satellite along with a number of companions. Launch of the satellites – coverage of which was “blacked out” from the media with just 30 minutes notice – took place on the 8th July 2014 at 15:58 UTC from Site 31/6 at the famous Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
