TURKSAT and Istanbul Technical University
TURKSAT-3USAT is a three unit CubeSat built jointly by TURKSAT and the Istanbul Technical University (ITU). The VHF/UHF transponder and all other subsystems, except the stabilization, are doubled for redundancy. Where possible, both COTS systems and in-house development are employed. The power is provided using solar panels and lithium polymer batteries together with super capacitors. Satellite stabilization is accomplished using passive magnetic attitude control system with hysteresis rods. There is a camera payload to take images of the Earth. TURKSAT 3USAT was launch on April 26, 2013 at 0413 UTC on a CZ-2D rocket from the Jiuquan Space Center into a 680 km Low Earth Orbit.
