Abstract

We have participated in the ARLISS (A Rocket Launch International Student Satellite) project since 1999 to design, manufacture and operate small satellites. These satellites called CanSat are the size of soft drink can (350ml). We launched five CanSats on the Black Rock desert in Nevada, U.S, to 12,000ft using amateur rocket, and dropped them with parachutes in July 2000. During their dropping, we operated these CanSats and tested their functions. Furthermore, we conducted additional experiments in Taiki town, Hokkaido, Japan using a balloon to check functions that didn't work well in ARLISS experiment. In this paper, we describe the mission, subsystem design and results of. the experiments on each CanSat, and report the results of the additional balloon experiments.
