PolyITAN-HP-30 (QBUA01)


PolyITAN-HP-30 or QBUA01 is a 2U CubeSat project led by Kiev National University - Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (KPI).

The mission is to launch a Ukrainian educational satellite designed by KPI students and space exploration enthusiasts to address a variety of educational, scientific, and technological university issues.

Specific mission objectives include:

  • the construction and launch of a nanosatellite to test advanced space technologies, study available capabilities, and identify new tasks for the development of near space
  • the operation of solar sensors, GPS / Glonass receiver, magnetometers, gyroscopes, electromagnets, and a flywheel in a space orientation and stabilization system
  • the study of thermal regulation of a local heat source based on MICRO-heat pipes in low orbit is being investigated.
  • a new space experiment on payload thermal regulation using heat pipes;
  • testing the operation of new software to control satellite systems and obtain telemetry from the ground station.

Amateur operators from all over the world will be able to participate in the mission by receiving QBUA01 micro heat pipe mission satellite telemetry, beacon, and science payload data. Cooperation between educational institutions, space agency(s), and various government authorities, as well as the HAM radio community, should be established.
