Power consumption

Power Consumption

  • Maximum Margin: 87.61% per cycle in Safe Mode

  • Minimum Margin: 14.19% per cycle in Thrust Mode


Communications

Communications

  • The Texas Instruments CC1120 UHF Band RF Transceiver.

  • Operating half-duplex on the 433 MHz Bandwidth.

  • Low power output: ~100mW, requires power amplifier.

  • Mission-tested: CAPE-1 (University of Louisiana) and CP4 (California Polytechnic Institute) missions.

  • SPI Interface, dual buffer system.

  • Transmission via the ISIS Deployable UHF/VHF antenna system in Dipole-Dipole configuration.

  • Utilising the ISIS antenna's integrated 2W power amplifier configured to output at 1W.

  • Operating on 3.3v Logic and Power levels.

  • Second dipole antenna is wired as backup.


Transceiver board

Module interconnections

Module Interconnections

  • Module interconnections are shown below. The red lines are power connections and the blue lines are the control wiring.


Attitude control

Attitude Control

  • Most components designed by hand

  • Refinement critical when CXT is fully developed

  • Reaction Wheels

    • Blue Canyon Technologies

    • Torque: 0.6 mN.m

    • Power usage: 0.1 W

    • Size: 43x43x18 mm

    • Total of 3 used


Charge exchange thruster

Charge Exchange Thruster

  • Developed by University of Sydney

  • Total of 12 used, in sets of 6

  • Still in development

    • Fuel: Argon gas or Iodine solid

    • Thrust: Approx. 0.08 mN

    • Specific Impulse: Approx. 15,000 s

    • Fuel rate: Unknown


Fuel tank

Fuel Tank

  • Operating fuel rate, pressure and fuel type not confirmed

  • Designed for Argon gas

    • Made of aluminium

    • Leaks before fracture

    • Inner radius: 23.5 mm

    • Outer radius: 27 mm

    • Safety factor to yielding: 2


Piping

Piping

  • Same pressure as tank

  • Aligned with the tank’s brace

  • Designed for Argon gas

    • Made of aluminium

    • Inner radius: 5.2 mm

    • Outer radius: 6 mm

    • Safety factor to yielding: 2


Valves

Valves

  • Highly dependent on fuel rate and pressure

  • Design not possible until CXTs confirmed

  • Likely to use a piezoelectric actuator, similar to that shown on the right

    • Uses high voltage, similar to CXTs

    • May need to adjust pressure to operate correctly
