The CubeSat Club at The University of Utah (UCubeSat) seeks to provide opportunities for students to get involved in a space-related engineering project by researching, designing, and launching a CubeSat into space.
Our current CubeSat mission design is a real-time virtual reality control system with gyroscopic attitude controls and a live wide-angle camera feed from Low Earth Orbit (LEO).
There are many systems required for the successful construction of a CubeSat, and we've divided these systems into teams:
- Avionics and Payload (AVP) is responsible for: Onboard Computer with Avionics system, Camera Interface
- Mechanical is responsible for: Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS), Chassis design and fabrication
- Telemetry is responsible for: CubeSat transceiver, Ground Station
- Photovoltaics is responsible for: Solar Array, battery, and power distribution
- VR Client is responsible for: camera feed view, attitude controlling, general CubeSat communication
