CubeSat Test Bench Power Systems Testing

by nichflor on Sun Feb 09, 2020 12:54 am

Currently helping to design and build a CubeSat test bench in a joint effort between Villanova University and Rutgers University, for Rutger's STAR Organization. I am in charge of power systems testing and am interested in using the adafruit IO. Please find that the test "subject" will be here: https://github.com/alanbjohnston/CubeSatSim/wiki

Need advice on how we can implement testing into our test bench. We were thinking of using a microcontroller to run scripts to power the satellite and then shut down for safety protocols as well as watch dog circuits. Wondering if anyone has insight or suggestions on how to attack this maybe from a different angle and how to implement Ada IO!

Thank you!

I don't have much experience with CubeSats, you may want to try the #smallsats channel on the Adafruit Discord Server (http://adafru.it/discord).
