AMSAT-UK are delighted to announce that Howard Long, G6LVB, will be present at the Colloquium this year and will be launching a new “FUNcube Dongle PRO-PLUS” during his presentation. UPDATE: For a video of the presentation see http://www.uk.amsat.org/?p=10297
Full technical details have been embargoed until his talk and we are not permitted to steal his thunder by releasing further details of this new product in advance. Attendees at the Colloquium will therefore be the first to learn about Howard’s latest development which will further advance the applications for SDR devices.
The FUNcube SDR Dongle was originally developed for educational outreach as part of the ground segment for the FUNcube satellite. A proportion of the sales of the FUNcube SDR Dongle goes to support AMSAT-UK’s FUNcube satellite.
The Colloquium is a truly international event and will include:
Exclusive access to inspect the new SSTL clean room and integration facilities at the recently opened Kepler Building. If you have visited their previous facilities at the university campus, during previous Colloquia, you will be amazed by what is happening now.
Presentations by experts from AMSAT-SA, AMSAT-NA and AMSAT-DL on their current spacecraft projects.
CubeSat presentations on UKube-1, STRaND-1, STRaND-2 and, of course the FUNcube-1 project.
We will be including an exclusive roundup of a number of new live and potential spacecraft projects that are under investigation and/or development.
Additionally a number of presentations are planned covering new communications techniques and similar futuristic topics.
Plus all the usual networking opportunities, the gala dinner and auction/raffle, plus the opportunity to operate the sophisticated groundstation in the GB4FUN mobile demonstration module.
The Colloquium takes place at the Holiday Inn, Guildford, GU2 7XZ, United Kingdom, September 15-16. Rooms and Saturday’s Gala Dinner must be booked in advance here .
