Description

This project is made for the Design for Space Challenge.


Pandora is a highly modular 1u segment Cubesat that possesses the capability of navigating the low earth orbit and retrieving Vanguard 1, it is a derivative of a rigorous design iterative approach and is designed for effectiveness, with a delicate balance of robustness and frugality.

Component Breakdown:

Rails: The rails serve as the chassis for the satellite, it houses and protects all the components of the Cubesat.

Solar Panels: Supply power to run the on board electronics. Power for propulsion

Camera: Object detection: Responsible for identifying Vanguard 1. Feedback mechanism: Essential element in the calibration and functioning of the Grip and Retrieve mechanism. The camera serves as a fallback for the sun sensor.

Transceiver: The transceiver is a device comprising both a transmitter and a receiver which share a common circuitry. It is the module critical for maintaining a continuum of contact with earth.

On-Board Computer: The on-board computer is responsible for all the computations of Pandora , it systematizes the functioning of Pandora.

Magnetorquer: The Magnetorquer is the component responsible for course and heading correction. It uses the earth’s magnetic field to reorient the satellite.

Sun Sensor: The sun sensor is used to detect the alignment of the satellite with respect to the sun.

Thruster: The thruster system is responsible for the acceleration and deceleration of the satellite in space.

Grip and Retrieve Mechanism: The grip and retrieve mechanism consists of two mechanical arms which deploy when Vanguard 1 is nearby. The arms slide out of their holders with through rack and pinion mechanism. When the arms are deployed, the pinions are grounded. Now, the same motors that helped the arms to slide out of their holders are used to tilt the arms to the required angle.


Salient features of Pandora:

1. Ease of assembly

2. Modularity3. Frugal yet robust

Other possible applications:

1. Space waste collection/Sample retrieval bot

2. Weather Satellite
