Da Vinci

Da Vinci [Project Da Vinci]

Da Vinci is an educational 3U CubeSat by the North Idaho STEM Charter Academy to teach students about radio waves, aeronautical engineering, space propulsion, and geography by sending a communication signal to schools around the world.

The Da Vinci satellite features a small camera payload and has the standard capability to communicate with a ground station and any receiver kits tuned to receive the correct frequency. Additionally, it will test communications via the Globalstar satellite communications network.

Da Vinci was selected in 2016 by NASA to be launched as part of the ELaNa program. It is baselined to fly in 2017 on the ELaNa 19 mission on an Electron rocket.
