Abstract

The Simulated Satellite (SimSat) Project is a NASA educational outreach program. The main goal of this project was to design, build, test, document, and fly a SimSat payload for high school students to replicate. We defined design requirements and divided the project into subsystems. Each subsystem was then developed and tested independently, followed by integration and testing of the entire system prototype. Once the prototype was finished we conducted two successful test flights at NASA Wallops Flight Facility. Finally we analyzed the results and concluded that our design met all of the system requirements.
