We’re still on the ground but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy! In fact, our team has been more active than ever, working on the OreSat project from our homes.
In this awesome video playlist, Catie Spivey of the Portland State Aerospace Society (PSAS) gives a walk through of the OreSat Solidworks full assembly. The first video starts with the feature tree and a top-level view of various sub-assemblies. You can see the first video below, and check the PSAS Youtube channel for more great CubeSat content.
You can also check out the CAD files for yourself.
There are a lot of things to be done for OreSat. They range from the technical (thermal simulations, board layout, RF communications, embedded Linux, firmware, machining, solar power systems, space deployables, radiation hardening, etc) to the day-to-day (fund-raising, project management, etc). If you’re interested in learning more, getting involved, or just following along, you can find more information on Github.
