D-STAR Satellites

OUFTI-1 will be the first satellite to test the use of the D-STAR communication protocol in space. Another experiment that will fly aboard OUFTI-1 is an innovative electrical power system proposed by Thales Alenia Space ETCA.

OUFTI-1 bus provides the necessary support function for the operation of these experiments and is a complex assembly of 7 subsystems listed below. The effective interaction between these subsystems is crucial to the success of the mission. In the framework of OUFTI-1, spacecraft systems engineering is the responsibility of the MIAS: MISSION ANALYSIS team.
