New Student Satellites Announced by India and University of Colorado - 13-January-2010, 20:20

A new Amateur Radio Satellite from India, named StudSat (STUDent SATellite) is slated for a March 2010 launch and will carry a camera capable of 90 metre resolution which will be used to perform the function of a remote sensing satellite and take images of earth’s surface.
The satellite resembles a small cube of size (10 cm x 10 cm x 13.5 cm), weighing about 850 gm and has a volume of 1.1 litres. The satellite is intended to be launched in 700 km Sun-synchronous orbit on an Indian launcher. StudSat plans to use a 10mW CW beacon on UHF and also a half duplex 9k6 or 4k8bps FSK TC/TLM link with 1 watt output also on UHF. This satellite has been coordinated by the IARU but the only frequency information available at this time states that 437 MHz will be used.
Further information on StudSat can be found at http://www.teamstudsat.com/
The University of Colorado at Boulder has been awarded $840,000 from the National Science Foundation for students to build a tiny spacecraft to observe energetic particles in space that should give scientists a better understanding of solar flares and their interaction with Earth's atmosphere.
Scheduled for launch in 2012, the three-year grant to CU-Boulder's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics and the aerospace engineering sciences department involves the development of a 5-pound, loaf of bread-sized spacecraft carrying a miniature instrument package to observe energetic particles tied to "space weather" in the near-Earth environment. This satellite has been coordinated by the IARU but no specific frequency information is available at this time.
