The work is devoted to the creation of a nanosatellite (CdS) format Cubesat, 3U by developing, modeling and researching efficient service subsystems to provide a payload - an opto- electronic scanner with a capability of shooting in the range of up to 30 m when it operates in orbit at altitudes up to 700 km.
The above works are carried out by the students of the undergraduate, postgraduate students and research staff of the following faculties: TEF, PTF, FEL, FAA, PBF and MMI, as well as attract specialists of PJSC "Pivdenne" (Dnipropetrovsk) as consultants.
Object of research is the educational nanosatellite (further NS) a format 2U CubeSat.
Objects of research are a subsystem of navigation for NS on an earth orbit with receiver GPS/GLONASS, a subsystem of orientation of NS, a subsystem of communication of NS to ground station with a format of data interchange AX.25 and BPSK modulation.
The operation purpose is development of subsystems of navigation, orientation and communication of NS by methods of physical modeling and an experimental research of the main parameters of subsystems.
For the first time in Ukraine team of students and teachers has developed experimental flight model of nanosatellite and structural - technological methods for ensuring of thermal conditions of all nanosatellite subsystems. Namely, onboard the data processing subsystem with the help of onboard computer and software applications, three axes attitude determination and control subsystem with sun sensors, radio frequency link telecommunication subsystem, telemetry tracking and control subsystem, electric power supply subsystem.
Bases of creation of midget space vehicles as space microlaboratories are worked out. Theoretical and experimental researches are conducted on creation of the systems of microsatellites, basic scheme-technical decisions are worked out, software is developed. The ground center of communication with microsatellites in the amateur range of frequencies for realization of space experiments is created
