Cheap cubesat boards by KSF Space Foundation USA
As part of its education outreach initiative and leading in cubesat industry and space mission for universities the KSF Space Foundation announced that they have released a new board systems for their cubesat education kit which is also ready to fly.
The cubesat kit is affordable the most universities in developing countries and other countries it can be purchased with the budget of any lab or school no need to raise funding.
The new board was designed and manufactured and also tested as a circuit boards for deployment the cubesat in a space with altitude up to 250 km.
The electronics board module are independent bus boards that can be stacked and attached an interconnected as desired.
The board was designed to be light in terms of weight and adapting smaller size and low power equipment and consumption which means cost-effective.
The foundation is offering great opportunity to launch the satellite cubesat / nanosatellite to near space altitude up to 40Km for testing and gather data for climate change or any other missions needed by the university or school, as part of their vision to encourage universities to develop and launch space missions to space.
This cubesat kit is considered the world’s cheapest cubesat / nanosatellite in small satellite industries for education and research outreach.
KSF Space foundation is offering free enrolment to it’s accredited Nanosatellite Engineering Professional certification 'NEP Certificate' for three candidates upon purchasing the cubesat kit.
The model is tested and ready to fly, easy to integrate and post integrate with any extra payload needed. The basic model comes with major CubeSat instruments, however, KSF Space Foundation is offering other advanced models depends on mission task and mission requests.
Dr Kayyali, Chairman of KSF Space Foundation mentioned, “This model will allow universities and schools with a small budget to develop their space project easily, there is no need to secure funding.”
KSF Space Foundation was initially founded to enable cost-efficient access to LEO with zero-environmental impact flying solutions. The foundation offers access to near-space and LEO for research and scientific experiments in many fields, as Earth or space observation, biological testing, satellite positioning detection, earth magnetic field measurement, radio transmit, atmosphere science and technology experiment.
