Book Description

Is your picosatellite ready for launch? Can it withstand rocket thrusts and the vacuum of space? This do-it-yourself guide helps you conduct a series of hands-on tests designed to check your satellite’s readiness. Learn precisely what the craft and its components must endure if they’re to function properly in Low Earth Orbit.

The perfect follow-up to Satellite Platforms (our primer for designing and building a picosatellite), this book also provides an overview of what space is like and how orbits work, enabling you to set up the launch and orbit support you’ll need.

  • Go deep into the numbers that describe conditions your satellite will face
  • Learn how to mitigate the risks of radiation in the ionosphere
  • Pick up enough formal to understand what the tests are all about
  • Build a thermal vacuum chamber for mimicking environment of space
  • Simulate the rocket launch by building and running a vibration shake test
  • Use a homebuilt centrifuge to conduct high G-force tests
  • Get guidelines on scheduling tests and choosing an appropriate lab or clean room
