Low Earth orbit microsatellites for data communications using small terminals
For more than a decade SSTL/UoSAT has been pioneering the use of microsatellites in low Earth orbits. Simple, efficient and low cost digital 'store and forward' communications systems are a keyExpand
The potential for 'store-and-forward' communications using small satellites in low Earth orbits
The UoSAT Spacecraft Engineering group at the University of Surrey has investigated the use of low Earth orbits for electronic mail or 'store and forward' systems. the launch of UoSAT-2 in 1984 as anExpand
Improving the throughput of a low-Earth orbit microsatellite protocol
This paper proposes an approach to improve the throughput of the uncoded protocol in use by some UoSAT/SSTL microsatellites, i.e., the hole-filling PACSAT broadcast automatic retransmission request (PB-ARQ). Expand
Off-The-Shelf Micro-Satellites for Science and Technology Missions: The USAF PICOSat Mission using the SSTL Modular Microsatellite
One way to achieve faster and cheaper small satellite missions is to make maximum use of off-theshelf (OTS) technology. OTS subsystems are found in many small satellite missions, typically configuredExpand
