Eager to build your own satellite ? A dream has become true for several dozens of youngsters at the SatCamp. Take an Arduino, a 3-D printer, a bit of electronics, a small radio and programming: “MySat” is ready for launch! MySat-1 starts with measuring its environment (temperature, air pressure, humidity) and sending it back to the ground over radio. MySat-2 is going further with 3-D attitude determination, GPS localisation, Solar panels and the Lesley Experiment. MySat-3 will gp even higher … but pssst, this is a surprise!
The UBA, in collaboration of the Euro Space Center in Belgium, organises summer camps since 4 years. Find here the success story of this experience. (published in UBA’s magazine CQ-QSO 09-10 2019, the article is in both Dutch, and French)
