Internet of Space (IoS) is an embedded device application with a 1" x 1" UV stabilized PCB containing a CDMA radio transceiver, MEMS magnetometer, gyroscope, inertial measurement unit (IMU), switched ECC RAM, and thermal sensors. This embedded device platform is called the Femto Satellite.
The CC430 SoC is the core of the Femto Satellite, providing all computing and communication capabilities. It combines an MSP430 microcontroller, which is clocked at 8 MHz and provides 4 kB of RAM and 32 kB of flash memory, with a very flexible CC1101 UHF transceiver capable of output powers up to 10 mW and data rates up to 500 kbit/s. Both the MSP430 and CC1101 have flight heritage on CubeSat missions. An Arduino-based development environment, known as Energia, has been ported to the CC430 to facilitate rapid code development and prototyping.
The Femto Satellite missions include the Internet of Space, where your cell phone, tablet, or notebook becomes the ground station via a low cost (< $10) SDR (software defined radio) dongle. Other possible missions include asteroid detection, true random number generator (TRNG), protected CDMA communications, solar weather or CME monitoring, earthquake and tsunami detection, and radiation or cosmic particle detection. There are a plethora of industrial, commercial, and agricultural applications if other simple pH, chemical, and salinity sensors are added to this IoS and IoT platform.
Internet of Space capabilities, including:
Anywhere, anytime connectivity in power grid-less and infrastructure-less environments
Earthquake and tsunami detection
Radiation and cosmic particle detection
TRNG for cryptographic and communications applications
How to use space embedded developed technology in commercial, industrial, agricultural, and consumer applications.
Welcome! You can use the Session Scheduler tool to browse sessions and build a custom event schedule. Once you've saved your personal schedule, you can access it from the free GDC Europe Mobile app (available approximately 30 days before the event). Note: use the same login/password on the Mobile app that you set up on this web site.
Step 1. Create an account. Use the "Create Account" button at the top of the right-hand corner.
Step 2. Choose a view. Select either the "List" or the "Grid" icon. (It's the same data, just a different view of the sessions.)
Step 3. Choose your sessions. Click the "Add" or "Remove" button next to each session to add it to, or remove it from, your personalized schedule.
Step 4. Review your schedule. Push the "My Schedule" button in the left column to view your selected sessions.
