GT-1 is the first of four in a series of 1U CubeSats to be developed by Georgia Tech annually. GT-1 contains experimental deployable solar panels and a deployable UHF radio antenna. This mission demonstrates a rapid lifecycle of a university level CubeSat.
The goal of the GT-1 Mission is to produce a working satellite bus as a foundation for experimental technologies that will fly on missions GT-2 through 4.
GT-1 is a 1.14 kg 1U CubeSat with experimental deployable solar panels and a deployable UHF radio antenna.
GT-1 will be launching to the ISS on a CRS supply mission in Q3 2021. From there it will be loaded into a CubeSat orbital deployer and inserted into Low Earth Orbit.
