TechEdSat & F-1

TechEdSat, San Jose State University in USA

It will be deployed from the International Space Station (ISS).
It is a 1U CubeSat that will demonstrate Plug and Play power architecture and
two way communication via the satellite phone/data networks Iridium and Orbcomm.

There will be a 437.465 MHz beacon transmitting 1 watt to 1/4 wave monopole.
Commanding is via the commercial networks and there is a 2 week watchdog timer
to stop the beacon in the event of no commands being received.

TechEdSat will be launched along with Raiko, FITSat-1, We-Wish and F-1 to the
ISS aboard HTV-3, currently planned to launch July 21, 2012. From there, it will
be deployed into Low Earth Orbit  using the JAXA J-SSOD deployer, from the
Japanese Experiment Module (JEM also known as Kibo). They will be deployed with
the Kibo robotic arm planned for September, 2012.
