The KSF Space Foundation has officially confirmed the release of a new board system for their cubesat education kit, which is also ready to fly. This announcement comes as part of the foundation’s education outreach initiative, which aims to position the organization as a leader in the cubesat industry and in space missions for universities.
It is possible to purchase the cubesat kit within the budget of any lab or school, so there is no need to raise additional financing for it. This makes it accessible to institutions in developing nations as well as other countries.
The cubesat kit by KSF Space Foundation was made to make the assembling and coding much easier than traditional way in building a cubesat, the cubesat kit by KSF Space Foundation is made and designed for beginners and schools or universities who are developing their 1st cubesat / nanosatellite mission, the module is ready to fly to sub-orbital flight and was tested in microgravity in many similar space missions. The cost of cubesat kit by KSF Space considered the world’s cheapest kit out there.
The deployment of the cubesat in space at an altitude of up to 250 kilometers required the creation of a new board, which was then built and put through testing as a circuit board.
The electronic circuit board modules are individual bus boards that can be stacked, coupled, and interconnected in any configuration that the user desires.
The circuit board was developed to be lightweight in terms of both its size and its weight, as well as to make use of low-power equipment and have a low power consumption; this makes it cost-effective.
As part of their objective to inspire academic institutions to design and launch space missions, the foundation provides excellent opportunities for universities to send cubesats and nanosatellites into near-space orbits of up to 40 kilometers for use in testing and data collection related to climate change and other relevant missions.
When it comes to teaching and research outreach in the field of tiny satellite industries, this cubesat kit is regarded as the most affordable nanosatellite or cubesat in the world.
Upon the purchase of the cubesat kit, the KSF Space foundation will provide three candidates with a complimentary enrollment to its approved Nanosatellite Engineering Professional certification program, which is known as the “NEP Certificate.”
The model has been validated and is now ready to be flown. Additionally, it is simple to integrate and post-integrate with any additional payload that may be required. The base model already includes the key CubeSat instruments; nevertheless, the KSF Space Foundation does offer other advanced models, and the availability of these models is contingent on the mission task and the mission demands.
It was claimed by Dr. Kayyali, Chairman of the KSF Space Foundation, that “this model will allow universities and schools with a small budget to easily develop their space project, there is no need to secure funding.”
KSF Space Foundation was established in the beginning with the primary goal of facilitating low-cost access to low-Earth orbit through the development of flying solutions that have no negative effect on the surrounding environment. The foundation provides access to near-space and LEO for the purpose of conducting research and scientific experiments in a wide variety of fields, such as the observation of Earth or space, biological experimenting, satellite navigation detection, earth magnetic field evaluation, radio transmit, and an experiment to study the atmosphere and how it interacts with technology.
