Cube Sat Instructable

Introduction: Cube Sat Instructable

By Caden Howard

Step 1: Brainstorm

  • Get with your team and identify your main objectives, and how you will accomplish them.
  • Decide what type of sensor you will use, and how you will receive your data.
  • Brain storm different designs and alternatives to building your cube sat.

Step 2: Research

  • Do research on arduinos and your specific sensor.
  • Decide how you will utilize your sensor
  • find a code that will work for your sensor and make it effective.

Step 3: Assemble Arduino

  • Find where you should connect the senor to the arduino.
  • connect them correctly and upload code from computer.
  • Run tests to ensure the sensor and arduino are working correctly.
  • Put together SD card and wire to arduino.
  • Run tests again and upload data from the SD to make sure it works properly.

Step 4: Assemble Cube Sat

  • cut out a 10 X 10 X 10 cm cube of card board and fold together
  • ensure one side can open and clip closed.
  • Attach Velcro to inside to hold arduino in place.
  • Attach sting to hang from motor
  • ensure that whole arduino can fit into the cube and not fall apart.

Step 5: Tests

  • Do shake test to simulate a take off for the cube
  • If any wiring come undone fix this problem and retest
  • Do flying simulator and repeat the last step.
  • Again make adjustments to the cube.

Step 6: Final Test

  • Do the final test and collect data
  • Upload data to computer and analyze it
  • put together presentation about the hard work accomplished.

Step 7: Review

  • complete review about project and presentation
  • Give grades to classmates/team members
  • Decide how to make cube sat better
  • celebrate a job well done
