AAUSAT 5 [AAU]
The main purpose for the AAUSAT (Aalborg University Satellite) project is for the involved students to achieve a great deal of knowledge about designing and constructing Space worthy technology.
AAUSAT 3 was built completly inhouse in the university using no Cubseat-kit. It tested an AIS-receiver in orbit.
AAUSAT 4 will test a student built AIS (Automated Identification System) receiver. AAUSAT 4 is one of the educational CubeSats chosen for Phase 1 and 2 of ESA's ‘Fly Your Satellite!’ initiative.
AAUSAT 5 has a primary mission to receive AIS beacons from ships with a new design based on AAUSAT 3. Additionally a educational payload for high school outreach was designed first half 2014 by engineering students. The AIS receiver payload is based on SDR principles. It was deployed from the ISS on on 5 October 2015 and is expected to remain in orbit for approx 6 months.
