Deployment

Deployments is also beyond our control.

P-POD has an excellent deployment record.

An independent (VHF/UHF) beacon is extremely important for getting an initial fix on your CubeSat. TLEs, etc. may be incorrect / swapped via-a-vis another CubeSat. Beacons should transmit at least once per minute to allow multiple detections per pass per ground station. Libertad-1 experience (10 minute interval, QSL cards for initial fix).

Beacon data should be simple, unencoded, with health & status info (e.g. time, battery status, etc.)

Companies (e.g. 1Earth Research) can do initial acquisition for a fee.
