But what is a cubesat?
A CubeSat is an increasingly common form of satellite. With a small size of just 10x10x10cm and a maximum weight of 1.3Kg, CubeSats provide an extremely cheap alternative to traditional bus-sized satellites.
Where traditional satellites cost billions of dollars and years-decades to build and launch, CubeSats can be quickly built and launched for a few hundred thousand dollars. In many cases these CubeSats can also perform the same tasks as traditional satellites.
Let your students choose what they want to learn
Designed with expandability and innovation in mind
RASCube is a modular system, meaning RAS will develop add-on modules to add functionality to RASCube. Students will then be able to select which modules they use, targeting their passion.
Students who are more ambitious can develop their own modules that are compatible with the rest of the satellite, by using provided documentation.
