COMPASS 2 ist der zweite von Studenten gebaute Satellit der FH Aachen.

Wie beim ersten Satelliten Projekt COMPASS 1, wurde der Compass 2 nach den CubeSat-Standards gebaut.

Er wurde als ein Triple-CubeSat entwickelt, was ein gesamt Gewicht von 3 kg und Abmessungen von 100x100x340,5 mm bedeutet. Die Studenten der FH Aachen entwickelten das Bus-System mit den notwendigen Teilsystemen zur Stromerzeugung und -verteilung, Datenverwaltung, Kommunikation und Datenübertragung zur Erde sowie den Schnittstellen für die Nutzlasten.

Der Satellit wird mit einer indischen PSLV Rakete in einen Orbit mit einer Höhe von 500 km mit einer Inklination von 97,4622°.

An Bord des Satelliten befinden sich zwei Experimente: ein so genanntes DragSail und Dünnschicht-Solarzellen.

Der Start des Satellit ist aktuell für ende Juni 2017 geplant.
Zurzeit trainiert das Mission Operation Team den Betrieb des Satelliten im Orbit.

So Finally I decoded C-Stars cw telemetry beacon,
playing back a hundred million of times the pre- recorded mp3 audio from the IQ-file in slowmo using a morse table. I was able to decode but took me ages to decode the first 2 lines...... Then PE0SAT proposed me to use FL-Digi and the 3rd and 4th Line was decoded immediately 🙂 Thank you man, you are awesome!

Lets us help this early bird, the Stars-C!
Tomorrow at 06:00 we will attempt to send the command to deploy the Daughter from the Mothership of STARS-C in presence of Prof. Masahiro Nohmi at Compass-2 / DL0FHA. Hopefully it will work despite the undeployed receiver antenna. We will try (if needed) a second time during the pass of 07:35. Downlink beacon frequency is 437,245MHz. Wish us good luck 🙂

Hey Guy's, I have to face one dilemma: Inflatesail,
Lituanicasat-2 and D-Sat are approaching our air- space. Which one should I track? 🙂 PE0SAT Mike Rupprecht

Tracking Funcube 1 few minutes ago. AOS:19h23utc Elmax:62.5° LOS:19h35utc. Perfect reception, we got a lot of packets, almost from horizon to horizon using SDR receiver: RTL2832 with 2m Yagi Array connected. We can provide the binary file if wanted. Just feel free to ask. Operator: Sacha Joseph Tholl

NOAA-19 some moments ago, captured over ESA Websdr located in Noordwijk / The Netherlands. Although the bandwidth via websdr is a lot smaller, one can get interesting results if you follow the doppler manually:

Yeeaah! We faced how to decode LituanicaSat-2 using Mike Ross's AGWPE and Mike Rupprecht's Online Kiss and his corresponding Visualization tool! It's beginning to make even more fun!
