Catapult hosting NanoSat building weekend in Harwell

By on

This weekend the Satellite Applications Catapult is hosting eight teams who will have the opportunity to assemble, program and test their own small satellites.

Using the Catapult’s own NanoSat design – based on the PocketQube standard – teams of four will get unique hands-on experience building, coding and operating the device.

The PocketQube satellites – which are 5x5x5 centimetres – include some basic sensors for temperature, light, and orientation, as well as a basic camera for image capture. Once completed, each NanoSat will be tested by flying it on a weather balloon.

Stuart Martin, CEO of the Satellite Applications Catapult, said: “In recent years, we’ve witnessed a dramatic shift in educational and commercial opportunities thanks to the growing power, reliability, and affordability of small satellite technology such as CubeSats and PocketQubes. This, in turn, is revolutionising how private organisations and individuals are already and will continue to exploit space.

“By hosting our own NanoSat weekend, we’re keen to promote this burgeoning sector and the endless opportunities available to new audiences, giving participants a good understanding of the principles of how a typical satellite works, from the basic avionics systems to the operation of an on-orbit instrument,” he added.

This weekend’s event is fully booked, but we will be running similar events in the near future. If you would like to take part, then register your interest on our website www.sa.catapult.org.uk to receive further information as it becomes available.
