UBO is an initiative from the Satellite Applications Catapult with the aim of teaching the public that access to space is not hard. The technology is inspired by real satellite engineering to give everyone the opportunity to learn how space data is integrated into our everyday lives.
Our mission is to empower a new wave of entrepreneurs in the space industry, utilising satellites for incredible applications and opening up space to creative new minds that will be future leaders in the industry.
The Scottish Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications (SoXSA) will host this one-day workshop at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, where you will have the chance to build a UBO PocketQube satellite and then code it using Arduino to achieve your mission goals! Will you be downloading telemetry data from the satellite over the radio, or transmitting image data from the on board camera? SoXSA challenges you to come up with a great new idea for the creation of data from space to solve challenges on earth.
We recommend this workshop to adults who have some prior programming experience, preferably Arduino, although this is not compulsory. We can accommodate 15 attendees and look forward to seeing what you create...
