Project Information
EE129A/B/C - Capstone Project
Following in the trail of the many educational satellites that have already been launched, the SlugSat project is working towards placing a small satellite into low earth orbit. The main payload of this satellite will be a linear transponder for communications use to enable reliable communications between Amateur Radio Operators via satellite relay. Through this process, students will develop spacecraft design and manufacturing capabilities at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
