Years in the making, OreSat, Oregon’s first satellite, is now in space! With the cubesat successfully whizzing around Earth, a handheld ground station kit for receiving data from the satellite as it passes overhead will be launching as part the Qorvo RF Accelerator. In anticipation, the team behind the project will be explaining what’s going on and answering questions on an upcoming video livestream, which includes free gear giveaways.
As featured in a local news broadcast, the cubesat known as OreSat0 launched into low Earth orbit on March 15, 2022. Built by the Portland State Aerospace Society (PSAS), a student group at Portland State University (PSU), the satellite can be tracked online and the data it broadcasts will soon be directly available to anyone with a soon-to-be released handheld ground station. Check out the OreSat Ground Station project for details and be sure to sign up to receive updates and be notified when the campaign launches. Of course, both the satellite and ground station rely on Qorvo components!
