UCISat 1 [UCI]
The UCISat 1 (University of California Irvine Satellite) was a 1U CubeSat mission by the University of California, Irvine, for education. It was an undergraduate managed student project.
All UCISAT-1 components were in-house designed.
The primary mission objective was to capture an image of Earth from LEO and transmit it to the K6UCI Ground Station on the UCI Campus. The secondary mission objective was to monitor the performance of the passive magnetic stabilization system and compare it with the predictions made in computer simulations. Furthermore, it was planned to record spacecraft telemetry daily in order to analyze solar cell currents, battery voltage and temperature, and subsystem temperature and to analyze long-term trends to identify faults and develop design improvements for future UCISAT missions.
Although built, the project was apparently ended after 2011 without launch.
