OSW Cazorla

OSW Cazorla [OSW]

Odyssey SpaceWorks (OSW)'s OSW Cazorla is a 3U CubeSat is a satellite to house enclosed lab modules.

OSW Cazorla will house an internal imaging sensor to record and monitor the results of experiments within the confines of an enclosed lab module and an external imaging sensor for orientation and mission assurance purposes. The satellite will also carry two fully contained lab modules with each running a separate scientific experiment while in low-Earth orbit.

  • Lab module 1 experiment - Tufts University
    Goal: The goal is to monitor and measure the growth and effectiveness of insect protein cells in LEO gravity compared to an Earth-based identical experiment. It will help determine cell culture production feasibility in space and could serve as a proof point for off-world pharmaceutical R&D and commercialization.
  • Lab module 2 experiment - Physical Synthesis
    Goal: This demonstration is focused on driving awareness and making space more accessible, and fun, with music. The goal is to test the efficacy of electronic components in space (in-orbit demonstration) and ability to transfer data back to servers on-planet. This lab module will house a digital synthesizer that will react to and convert LEO physical conditions into digitally produced sounds that the satellite can transmit to Earth. The data packets can then become audible sounds or music that the satellite originally produced in space.

The satellite was launched on a Falcon-9 v1.2 (Block 5) and flew onbaord the ION-SCV 013 space tug to be deployed some times after launch.
