CarthageSat 01, the first personal satellite


Develop a web tool, mobile device app or add-on for existing apps or websites that leverages NASA imagery and climate data to illustrate the impacts of our changing Earth in areas of interest to you. Some ideas to explore include:

  • Use NASA Earth observations data, social media, smart phones, and Short Message Service (SMS) text phones to collect Earth observations and connect public in local, regional, and national networks to communicate about our changing planet.
  • Examine current natural events curated by NASA’s EONET (Earth Observatory Natural Event Tracker) by browsing global historical and near real-time imagery from space.
  • Upload images or other data points demonstrating visible observations and how they compare to satellite data. For example, generating early-warning alerts or validating precipitation rates reported from NASA’s Global Precipitation Measurement Mission.
  • Integrate NASA imagery with a mobile assistant to allow for dynamic image generation based on a basic request structure.

CarthageSat 01 is based on Thurayasat communications satellites for the remote control tasks, based on GPS satellites for live tracking informations

This picosatellite uses an innovating way to send and receive data between itself and its command and control human operator

—In fact : it is a very low cost picosatellite , my CarthageSat 01 project costs the half of amount comparing to similar project in the world.

—This project is the first step to build personal satellites , as personal computers, personal TV and personal telephone.

——I think that with this low cost picosatellite we will be able to arrive in a day that everyone will have his own satellite controlled by his own website .
