Beakersat 1 [Morehead State University]
Beakersat 1, also called Eagle 1 or SWEsat, is a FemtoSat built to the 2.5U PocketQub form factor (12.5 cm × 5 cm × 5 cm).
The satellite is designed and Built by Undergraduate students at Morehead State University.
The approach taken on designing the subsytems bus for the PocketQube is to integrate a circuit with a Pic18F25K22 processor along with circuitry that contains components that will measure values such as: battery current and voltage; on-board temperature of the radio and processor; solar panel voltage, current, and temperature; and external temperature-- providing telemetry for the satellite and space environment monitoring. These values will be transmitted to the ground station via Morse code through an on-board RFM22 transceiver.
