CUBESAT ‘QUEST FOR ET’, GOING FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH
January 2016 update
There are just a few bits and bobs here that deserve a mention and are in effect self-explanatory.
CubeSat funding apparently increasing here, as mentioned on Facebook.
The ‘Southport Visiter’ reporter (Fran Fitzsimmonds) behind this pre-Xmas CubeSat story has just kindly sent me the news piece…
CubeSats are a type of standardized, modular satellite for research in space and are made up of 10×10×11.35 cm sized units each weighing up to 1.33 kgs each and can be a single modular satellite or be several linked to form a larger satellite. They are extremely cost effective and are intended for low Earth orbit. The team’s CubeSat will be capable of detecting and measuring various radiation sources which can then be visually confirmed with two nano-cameras operating with parabolic lenses for a 360 degree view around the satellite. They are also hoping to include a micro-radar system if they can secure a unit at reasonable cost (they are a very new and expensive technology), which
would give them the ability to verify detected objects in space.
The team’s goal is to secure $50,000 in funding for the project, which they are currently pursuing with crowd-sourced funding efforts at:

More soon, as it happens…
