UCISAT is a student-run CubeSat project at the University of California, Irvine.



UCISAT-1 is the first pico-satellite under development by the University of California, Irvine. The primary mission payload is a CMOS camera which will photograph the Earth from Low Earth Orbit and transmit images back to the K6UCI Ground Station. The secondary mission payload is a 6-DOF inertial measurement unit that will measure the spacecraft's rate of tumble from the time of deployment until it is stabilized by a passive magnetic attitude control system.
