TECH-ED-SAT PREDICTED TO DECAY ON 4-27-13
Permalink  
 


TechEdSat is a 1U CubeSat built by San Jose State University students in partnership with Ames Research Center and ŇAC Microtec. Its mission is to evaluate Space Plug-and-play Avionics (SPA) designed in Sweden by ŇAC Microtec, and to perform a communications experiment utilizing the Iridium and Orbcomm satellite phone network. TechEdSat was launched from Pad 2 of the Yoshinobu Launch Complex at Tanegashima on 21 July 2012, aboard Kounotori 3 atop an H-IIB carrier rocket. Kounotori 3 will carry the satellite, along with the Raiko, We Wish, Niwaka and F-1 spacecraft, to the International Space Station, from where they will be deployed via the JAXA J-SSOD deployer, from the Kibo module.

TechEdSat was successfully deployed from the ISS on 4 Oct 2012 at 15:44:15.297 UTC.
