CP 1 [Cal Poly]
The Cal Poly Picosatellite Project (PolySat) was founded in 1999 and involves a multidisciplinary team of undergraduate and graduate engineering students working to design, construct, test, launch, and operate a CubeSat.
CP1, the first satellite developed at Cal Poly, is designed with the objective of providing a reliable bus system to allow for flight qualification of a wide variety of small sensors and attitude control devices. For the first launch, CP1 carries a sun sensor developed by Optical Energy Technologies and an experimental magnetorquer developed at Cal Poly by undergraduate students. The test build of CP1 has undergone vibration and thermal-vacuum qualification testing at NASA worst-case qualification levels.
