Since 2006 I have been teaching high school students the fundamentals of Systems Engineering through the research, design, and construction of history’s first high school satellite. TJ3Sat (tj-cube-sat) will enter low earth orbit later this year and will serve as an educational outreach tool to schools around the world. With its payload of a phonetic voice synthesizer, users can upload strings of text (which is checked for content for obvious reasons) and it will transmit it back as spoken word. Users will also be able to log on to the students web interface and view the latest telemetry.
Today was a big day. We finished the final assembly of our flight unit. The satellite in the picture will shortly be disassembled, conformal coated, reassembled and put into environmental testing. Once we pass testing, the next step is being loaded onto a rocket and shot into space! WOOOOHOOOOO!
Although a bit dated, you can find out more information about the project at: http://tj3sat.wikidot.com
