RamSat successful deployment

David Andrews

RamSat, the CubeSat project developed by the Robertsville Middle School in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, was successfully deployed from the International Space Station at 05:05 EST yesterday. Post deployment activation occurred, and we have been receiving telemetry transmissions indicating nominal conditions. In the next week we expect to receive our first set of Keplerian elements, allowing accurate tracking by ground stations across the world.


We have an excellent blog detailing the efforts, including the fantastic videos of the actual deployment. Check it out at: https://sites.google.com/view/ramsat/home


Additionally, we are working to create an online dashboard to view current and historical telemetry with visual trending. Stay tuned for additional details.
