FUNcube-2 is also about to be on the move

by on October 28, 2013

In addition to the “stand alone” FUNcube-1 1U CubeSat, we have also be working with the UK Space Agency and have supplied a set of boards to create a FUNcube sub-system for the 3U UKube-1 spacecraft.

This will provide very similar functionality to that of FUNcube-1 and the ground system, the receivers, the Dashboard and the Data Warehouse are all designed to be compatible with both spacecraft.

The BBC have just reported that UKube-1 flight model will shortly be starting its journey to Russia ahead of a February launch.
