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 Cubsat-kit. It tested an AIS-receiver in orbit.
AAUSAT 4 tested 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.
