Satellites have been traditionally very expensive to make. If you are a student of this game, you need to find a way to practice and learn new skills though. The PocketQube Kit aims to provide educators and students with an affordable kit to build a satellite. The kit consists of:

  • Alba Orbital Skeletonized structure
  • Radiobro MiniSatCom
  • Alba Orbital Labsat
  • Alba Orbital On Board Computer (OBC)

The MiniSatCom from Radiobro has two versions, 420-450MHz or 902-928MHz. The Labsat allows you to test boards. The TI MSP430 microcontroller offers low power consumption and serves as a control hub for your satellite. The board is programmable. The PocketQube has an aerospace grade aluminum structure with two micro-switches for double redundancy. The kit is available for under $6000.
