DeorbitSail Satellite Unsuccessful in Deploying Sail
#1
Following its July 10, 2015, launch, the DeorbitSail satellite has achieved some, but not all, of its mission objectives, including contact with the satellite, solar panel deployment, and taking pictures of Earth. The satellite, a University of Surrey research project, carries a 1200 bps BPSK beacon transmitting on 145.975 MHz. DeorbitSail is a 3U CubeSat with a deployable sail to demonstrate rapid deorbiting.
