Do It Yourself  Satellite is an organization dedicated to promoting education and space technology through the radio amateur. Our planet  has entered the age of the Pocket Satellite with the introduction of PocketQube idea. The Pocket orbiter is the low-cost alternative with offers plenty of room for experiments and functions. Examples of add-on experiments or functions include the following:
  • Earth-from-space video imaging
  • Earth magnetic field measurement
  • Satellite orientation detection (horizon sensor, gyros, accelerometers, etc.)
  • Orbital environment measurements (temperature, pressure, radiation, etc.)
  • On-orbit hardware and software component testing (microprocessors, etc.)
  • Tracking migratory animals from orbit
  • Testing satellite stabilization methods
  • Biological experiments
  • On-orbit advertising
  • Private e-mail
This sats can  be placed into self-decaying orbits 310 kilometers (192 miles) above the Earth’s surface, they do not contribute to any long-term build-up of orbital debris. After a few weeks of operation, they will safely re-enter the atmosphere and burn-up. Pocket  Satellite can be  designed to be orbit-friendly and deploy a re-enter system too.
