ArduSat

Jonathan Oxer VK3FADO talks about the Ardusat project and shows his Arduino based cluster board at the Melbourne Connected Community Hackerspace.

The two Arduino-powered satellites ArduSat-1 and ArduSat-X arrived at the International Space Station on August 9, 2013 in the Japanese HTV-4 cargo vessel along with the PicoDragon and TechEdSat-3 CubeSats and the HamTV transmitter.

Among the other radio amateurs who’ve been working on ArduSat are Jeroen Cappaert KK6BLQ and Joel Spark KK6ANB, both hold the USA equivalent of UK and Australian Foundation licences.
