After both Astro Pi and subsequently LimeSDR were not responsive two weeks ago, we wondered what went wrong. Analyses yielded that a conflict in experiment scheduling caused a failure on the Astro Pi, while the failure on LimeSDR was caused by an undervoltage condition. Anyhow, this is to let you know that the system is running again.Read More Experiment continues
Once again many things happened after the previous post. Various radio amateurs send their transmissions to check if they can be received by MarconISSta. Then we had to find out that the experiment stopped working (again). Why? And what about these deinstallation procedures?Read More Radio Amateur Tests & Down Again & Deinstallation Procedures & IAC
It is already a month ago that MarconISSta was installed, and a lot was learned during this time. Want to know more?Read More Schedule & Heatmaps
We are getting more familiar with the received data and start to realize the amount of work ahead of us. Not only will it be very difficult to decide on the bands that shall be investigated each week, it is even more difficult to identify various signals that we receive and how to interpret them.Read More Summary of Week 1
We are happy to announce that the installation on Monday, August 13th 2018, was successful. NASA astronaut Serena Maria Auñón-Chancellor did a great job in the installation. And we already received the first data!Read More Installation successful! First data received!
Finally! MarconISSta will (tentatively) be installed on Monday, August 13th 2018, at 10:10 GMT/UTC (12:10 Central European Summer Time). NASA astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor will install MarconISSta, we can’t wait to get the first data!Read More Installation date confirmed!
Today (August 7th 2018), our team member Ilja presents a poster at the Small Satellite Conference in Logan, Utah, USA. BTW: Do you want to know the installation date?Read More MarconISSta @ SmallSat in Logan, USA
