This was our first ever satellite-related project. It was meant to be a model of a satellite launched to a low altitude with Helium balloon. Everything was built from scratch. The Model satellite consists of a camera payload (whose orientation is controllable from Ground Station using a joystick), Inertial Measurement Unit, Temperature Sensor, Pressure Sensor and SD Card.
Our Team with the model satellite and ground station
The model satellite and ground station was powered by an Arduino MEGA based driver board. The following poster sums up our design:
The satellite launch was done in E1A Area, Faculty of Engineering, National University of Singapore.
This project is part of EG1310 Exploratory Satellite Design (Satellite System Design Track) module at the National University of Singapore.
