Description

Welcome space ranger!

We present one of the best experiences of your training. You are now part of the CaTSat space missions program, a program created by Electronic Cats, which began in 2016 with the CaTSat 1 mission, which has allowed the launch of more than 50 picosatellites in various parts of the Mexican Republic and the world .

Today it’s your turn to be part of this family that is often young space enthusiasts, this time with the new CatSat Zero device, a new and improved version of the first CaTSat, with 4 times more computing power than its predecessor the CaTSat 1 and the first child-focused picosatellite can now be programmed with blocks in Make Code, the suborbital mission has new challenges for you, student or enthusiast passionate about space, this is a mission that allows you to experience and perform all the steps necessary to emulate a space mission.

Our kit has everything you need to build a “peak-satellite”, better known as a “can” satellite or CanSat. The CaTSat Zero has a series of modules integrated by flight computer, sensors and communications, this kit gives you the necessary tools to perform a series of experiments and measurements in the stratosphere of our planet.

We remind you that the entire design of CatSat Zero is free hardware, so you can study it, modify it and even create your own load modules. All this information can be found in the project repository on GitHub.

Don’t forget to leave your questions there too.

This is a modular satellite that has 2 types of payload:

Battery, Control and Telemetry

CanSat control card with SAMD21 microcontroller, battery charge control module and LoRa communication

Sensors and GPS

Card with temperature, humidity, pressure, altitude, CO2, VOC and GPS sensors.

This card has a GPS to know the position of the CatSat at all times, in addition to a LoRA RM95 module (range ~ 80km) in charge of telemetry and communication with the earth station.

Easy to assemble and weld, with test firmware and completely Open Source, if you are a teacher this is a great kit for the classroom and inspire your students to start in the space world.
