Abstract:
Designed by undergraduate engineering students at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Prescott, Arizona campus, EagleSat is the first cube satellite designed on campus, with an expected launch date in 2016. EagleSat will be testing the effect of solar radiation on conventional computer memories, as well as how a CubeSat deorbits over time. Flying EagleSat on HASP will allow the team to test all systems for a long duration flight in an environment quite similar to space. The communications system, solar cells, and onboard computer will be vital to this test, as all will be crucial to successful operations in space, and they will be the most prone to failure from thermal issues or unforeseen impacts during launch and landing.
