Planetum 1

Planetum 1 [Planetum]

Planetum 1 is a 1U Cubesat designed by Planetum, a cluster of Prague observatories and planetariums, to teach and popularize astronomy and cosmonautics. The control center in the Prague Planetarium will be open to school excursions, as well as to various workshops.

Planetum1 features an active orientation system that allows precise maneuvering as well as pointing of the satellite camera with an accuracy better than 1.5°. The satellite also is equipped with a device to measure the Earth's magnetic field.

Spacemanic has been chosen to build Planetum-1. Spacemanic is also in charge of design, integration, launch procurement, and launch campaign. Spacemanic will also help with operations, that will use proprietary ground station solution.

The communication with the satellite takes place via radio signals on amateur radio frequencies which allow radio amateurs to receive transmissions and data from the satellite.
