KCST CubeSat Project

The KCST/KSF Space Foundation programs impart critical skills essential to future space initiatives in the public and private sectors.

The space education & research program is designed to help colleges & universities who want to inspire and engage their students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects.

The Main objectives

  • Inspire enthusiasm among students towards space engineering and application
  • Promote international understanding and cooperation
  • Foster an interactive global network of students, teachers and alumni
  • Encourage the innovative development of space for peaceful purposes: to improve life on Earth and advance humanity into space.

The CubeSat is a small 10cm x 10cm Structure capable of carrying various types of sensors. The Space Strato Satellite CubeSat Scientific experiment includes:

  • Accelerometer
  • Gyroscope
  • Magnetometer
  • pressure
  • humidity
  • UV spectrum analyser
  • thermopile sensor
  • Camera and Video Recording
  • GPS
  • Altitude sensor
  • Radiation sensor
  • Gas Sensor
  • CO2 and Methane

Our research topics can be covering different life sectors as part of our strategy towards developing space missions with universities, including:

  • Agriculture
  • Global Health
  • Environment & Climate Change
  • Sustainable Development
  • Disaster Management
  • Education through NEP Certification & professional training
  • Transportation
  • Communication
  • Humanitarian Assistance

Features of Cubesat Project

  • 24 students were selected for the projects.
  • The students received initial in-house training on the technology and applications.
  • KSF provided the student with specialised training course on Nano-satellite engineering.
  • All students had to sit for an end-of-course exam
  • 17 students passed and received Nano-satellite professional certificate

KCST Near Space Satellite Mission 1- 2021
