Technical Poster Session 6: Flight & Ground Software

Location

Utah State University, Logan, UT

Abstract

The Deployable Optical Receiver Aperture (DORA) CubeSat is a 3U CubeSat that seeks to demonstrate data rates of 1 Gbps over distances of thousands. The DORA technology presents an easy to accommodate optical communications solution for smallsats, which previously was limited by the high pointing accuracy requirement for traditional optical communication systems. We believe this technology to be best suited for surface to orbit communications and the crosslink between small spacecraft, including those in smallsat constellations/swarms.
