TigriSat

TigriSat [Sapienza University]

TigriSat is an Iraqi 3U CubeSat built by Iraqi students at the La Sapienza University of Rome with a mission to detect dust storms over Iraq.

The 3U cubesat features a RGB camera with a new scripted algorithm for dust detection. It has a deployable VHF/UHF antenna for telemetry telecommand and beacon and a S-Band antenna. Embedded magnetic coils inside solar panels provide attitude control to enable nadir pointing. TigriSat transmits images to two ground stations, one located in Rome and another in Baghdad.

TigriSat was deployed from the Italian UniSat 6, which in turn was launched aboard a Dnepr launch vehicle operated by Kosmotras.
