LEOPARDsat-1 is a 1U CubeSat which will study the radiation mitigation effects of carbon-carbon composites. Once this satellite is in orbit it will operate for a minimum of 6 months at a target altitude of ~400km. Communication with this CubeSat will take place via our UHF ground station.
HABsat-1 is a 3U CubeSat mission will carry a multispectral imager as its payload and study harmful algal blooms in the great lakes. After successful deployment and startup this satellite will operate for a minimum of one year and provide updated images at least every 16 days.
The UC CubeCats's Ground Station is a small-scaled radio station that will communicate with our active CubeSats mainly recieving and demodulating incoming data. It will operate on S band, UHF(Ultra High Frequency), and VHF(Very High Frequency).
