KAI 1 []

KAI 1 is a Russian 3U CubeSat developed by the employees of NILACT DOSAAF LLC, KNITU-KAI University is being prepared to launch with the involvement of lyceumists of KNITU-KAI SUNC.

The CubeSat developers faced the following tasks:

  • Place on the satellite complex of cameras from which images will be transmitted to the ground complex. As a result of image processing, panoramic images of space (180-270 degrees) around the satellite will be formed.
  • Install a unique thermometer on the surface and inside of the satellite, made on the basis of a fiber Bragg grater (under the guidance of Kuznetsov A.A., Associate Professor of Photonics and Microwave Technologies of IRET).
  • For amateur radio service, the satellite can transmit a presence signal (beacon) in Morse code format and AX format in the format of AX.25 AFSK1200. Beacon frequencies: 435665 kHz, 435765 kHz. Additionally, each of the two on-board radio transmitters can be switched to the CM mode of the 145 MHz-435 MHz transmitter, allowing radio amateurs to broadcast for thousands of kilometers.
