Abstract/Artist Statement

CubeSat Payload Ashley Watanabe Faculty Mentors: Louise Stark, Ken Hughes University of the Pacific Society of Women Engineers Team Tech is building a prototype of a payload subsystem that will be included in a CubeSat (1 kg 10x10x10 cm satellite) used for space research. The Pacific SWE group is working with a team of students at the Universidad Popular Autónoma del Estado de Puebla (UPAEP). The Pacific Team is in the payload design phase, which involves conducting research on sensors, processors, and image compression algorithms. The final payload’s mission will be to perform Earth observations and characterizations of aerosols to mitigate risks in and around the state of Puebla, Mexico. From space, the CubeSat payload will capture, compress, and send images to a base stations located at Pacific and UPAEP where the image will be decompressed and analyzed. The two university teams are working with Tierra Luna Engineering, an aerospace engineering consulting company.
