BEESAT-9

Berlin Experimental and Educational Satellite (BEESAT-9)
Ansprechpartner

A second flight model is to be launched as part of the BEESAT-4 project. Under the name BEESAT-9, the engineering model of BEESAT-4 was modified and prepared for operations in space.

The primary mission objective is to implement a precise position and orbit determination package and to verify it in orbit. The GPS receiver GNSS200 from Hyperion Technologies is used for this purpose. This receiver is particularly well suited for 1U-CubeSats, since the energy consumption is low (max. 150mW), the mass small (approx. 1.6g) and also the occupied volume (20x15x3mm³) is minimal. Furthermore, the time to reach a valid navigation solution is very short (approx. 30s). This is particularly interesting for a non-continuous operation.

Similar to BEESAT-2 and -4, there will be a camera on board. The sensor will be the same, but a new lens will be used, which will allow a larger area per image to be captured. The Field of View would increase to 30°x23° compared to BEESAT-4 (23°x17°) with the same ground pixel resolution.

The BEESAT-9 mission will also be used for a technology demonstration of a pico-fluid dynamic actuator (pFDA). This is integrated on the newly developed payload board and significantly increases the agility of the attitude control. During the mission, the pFDA will be integrated into the attitude control and all actuators will be used to align the satellite.

The launch of BEESAT-9 is planned for the 5th of July 2019 on board a Soyuz rocket and was brokered and prepared by EXOLAUNCH. The operational phase of the satellite should last at least 1 year before it can be used for teaching purposes.
