SSETO ESEO - Update



The next SSETI "Student Space Exploration & Technology Initiative" satellite
project - ESEO continues to make progress towards a launch into GTO in 2008.

The ESA website has the latest details here
http://www.esa.int/esaED/SEM29W9ATME_highereducation_0.html

The AMSAT-UK payload, a linear 60kHz wide transponder for the satellite,
continues in development and we were invited to attend the recent Workshop at
the ESA-ESTEC facility which took place in May. The transponder will be a
single Mode U/S device and will incorporate a STELLA SDR processor to provide
the best possible system performance for all uplinked signals.

The transponder is also expected to provide telecommand and telemetry
facilities for mission controllers immediately after launch and before the
planned earth pointing attitude has been achieved and will also include a
400bps telemetry beacon.

More information will be provided during the AMSAT-UK Colloquium being held at
the University of Surrey in Guildford UK between July 28th and 30th. See
http://www.uk.amsat.org/Colloquium/ for more information.
