Space Station Opens Launch Pad for Tiny Satellites

Only one major objective will be unmet. Initially the satellite was supposed to compare OrbComm and Iridium communications techniques in space, but there was not enough time to meet the licensing requirements before the launch date.

"Of the other four satellites released Oct. 4, one of them, F-1, was a collaboration of Houston-based space hardware developer NanoRacks, Uppsala University in Sweden and FPT University in Vietnam."

I guess I should say "Congratulations".

BTW, when is your launch on Interorbital?

Thank you, this is just our first small step in a long journey ahead.

Wrt the launch with Interorbital, they told me that it'll be in 2013. While I hate these launch slips, on the bright side they give us time to learn from F-1 project and better prepare for the next CubeSat launch.

FITSAT-1 capture the ISS photo.
FITSAT-1 is programmed to shooting the ISS when activated.
This is preliminary photo. Now proceessing more clear coding.

Attempt to Recover the F-1 Amateur Radio CubeSat
http://www.uk.amsat.org/?p=11322

November 2, 2012, FSpace laboratory, FPT University issued an official report stating that no signal is heard from F-1 CubeSat after its deployment to space from the International Space Station (ISS) a month ago. However, the project team confirms that they are working to troubleshoot the problem.

Preliminary analysis points to failure of the satellite’s power supply subsystem as the cause of the problem. At the moment FSpace team together with US partner NanoRacks are collecting information, analyzing different scenarios that could happen to the satellite in orbit and experimenting with the Engineering Model

S. Korea has just gotten into this Cube or nano sat business.

I saw a video about it the other night and hope it gets uploaded soon.

Until then this is another story on it.

http://www.arirang.co.kr/Player/News_Vod.asp?code=News&nSeq=141680

The key point is that this is a new business and from what I understand of it, they will mass manufacture these and export them.

These are not CubeSat actually smallsat, but very interesting information.

Smallsats Finding New Applications

A case in point is Spinsat, which is set for “soft stowage” launch in the pressurized portion of the SpaceX Dragon headed to the International Space Station (ISS) next April. A station crewmember will carry the 22-in. sphere, essentially packed in a fabric bag, from the Dragon into the station and leave it there until its scheduled deployment through the Japanese module's airlock. NASA safety experts approved the mission because the satellite's 12 thruster-clusters burn an inert solid fuel called Hipep, and only when an electric charge is passed across it.

In space, the Naval Research Laboratory satellite will demonstrate the DSSP thruster technology in a series of maneuvers, and also serve as a reflector for ground-based laser ranging to study atmospheric drag. It is one of two very different spacecraft that will be passed through the Japanese airlock and released from the end of one of the station's robotic arms to test a new NASA deployer known as Cyclops.

Engineers at Johnson Space Center designed Cyclops to handle as many different spacecraft shapes as possible, grappling them with a special fixture, squeezing through the airlock tunnel and attaching to the end of the Canadian or Japanese-built arms to release them down and away from the back of the station to avoid recontact. In addition to the U.S. Navy's Spinsat, the Cyclops test in April will deploy a rectangular satellite—Lonestar-2—built by Texas college students.

Weir, isn't Hipep an ion engine running Xenon?

... yeah that doesn't make any sense. HiPEP stands for high power electric propulsion; an ion thruster... I thought.

Also, should we have a dedicated thread for satellite deployments via the ISS or should this thread be renamed?
