Build your own Spacecraft and launch it into Space
50 years ago humans achieved the ultimate goal by putting a man on the moon.
Today you can be part of the next generation of space explorers by building your very own space satellite.
Man ON the MOON 50 years AGO
What a fantastic achievement, putting man on the moon. It took 10 years, millions of man hours and billions of dollars.
50 years later, can it really be possible to put something into orbit around the Earth, something which you built yourself? Read on...
Space Exploration. At your fingertips.
Become part of the next generation of space explorers by building your very own Low Earth Orbit Space Satellite
The AmbaSat-1 Satellite
The revolutionary Sprite-class satellite enabling space exploration for everyone
The AmbaSat-1 Satellite Kit
The AmbaSat-1 Satellite Kit contains everything you need to build your own spacecraft. You assemble it using a soldering iron and code it using the Arduino programming environment. It’s easy to put together but powerful enough to send data back to Earth from Low Earth Orbit.
Coding your Satellite
Arduino is the language of Makers!
Your AmbaSat is fully Arduino compatible and code is written using C/C++
If you’ve never coded before, we’ve included a full step-by-step guide on how to program your satellite.
Also included is full example source code plus a range of different code templates which you can copy and modify so that you can get your satellite up and running quickly and doing exactly what you want it to do.
The Rocket Launch
Your satellite will travel into space inside a CubeSat which holds an additional 200 AmbaSat-1 satellites.
Once in Low Earth Orbit our ground station will issue the 'deploy' command to release the AmbaSats into space, where they will become free-flying spacecraft.
Your satellite will then power itself using its bank of solar cells and you will start to receive data to your AmbaSat Dashboard
Your Satellite Dashboard
The AmbaSat Dashboard is the heart of your satellite's Mission Control
Use your Dashboard for testing, debugging and viewing telemetry from your satellite. You can also view data and graphs from your onboard sensors.
Launchpad Live Video Stream
On launch day, log in to your Dashboard to watch a live video stream of the rocket launch
Smartphone, Tablet & PC
Access your Dashboard using any smartphone, tablet or PC.
How much does it cost?
The AmbaSat-1 Satellite product is a KickStarter project. Further details can be found on our Kickstarter page, linked from the button below.
The AmbaSat-1 satellite works on Earth as well as in Space so if you are looking for a proven end-to-end LoRaWAN enabled sensor system, bla….
