Thybolt 1 [Dhruva Space]
The Thybolt 1 and 2 satellites are 0.5U CubeSat technology demonstrators for Dhruva Space's modular Cubesat bus called P-DoT.
The 0.5U P-DoT Satellite Platform is envisioned to enable rapid development for experimentation by the amateur community. This mission provides a message store-and-forward capability to the users.
The mission shall demonstrate store-and-forward (S&F) operations and perform scheduled and unscheduled uplink of S&F data from amateur operators, store the data onboard and transmit the same data to distributed amateur radio compatible ground station/s in India and publish wherever required as per the Experiment Outline for Amateurs. Amateur operators can utilize this facility to evaluate their uplink equipment by sending S&F messages to the satellite and validate a successful downlink of sent messages from the website displaying all the S&F messages upon a ground station pass.
