Announcement of SunCET CubeSat
CubeSat beacon decoder / forwarder
Ham radio operators around the world can and have been using this application to listen to beacons from the MinXSS CubeSat and see real time telemetry from the satellite. It automatically forwards the data to the MinXSS team.
I wrote this software from scratch.
It's cross platform.
The ham community has since built and bought into SatNOGS, which is absolutely amazing.
Making of MinXSS video
I had taken 55 GB of video as we built and tested this satellite and knew no one would ever see it unless I compressed it into 5 minutes. I wrote the orchestral music for it as well.
I gave a public talk about how great MinXSS is from a variety of perspectives.
