Research Overview

  • Technical demonstration of ArduLab system
  • Temperature and acceleration measurements
  • Data transmission tests

Description

This experiment is a technical demonstration of the ArduLab microcontroller board system for use with the NanoRacks modular experiment system. The ArduLab will have simple measuring instruments (temperature, acceleration) to demonstrate the utility of the ArduLab system for future experimental use. Data from the ArduLab will be downlinked for analysis.

NanoRacks ArduLab-1 is a 1.5U format NanoRacks Module and is approximately 100 x 100 x 150 mm in size, weighs approximately 1.5 kg. It plugs into a NanoRacks Platform-1 or -2 and will be powered via a USB port. NanoRacks ArduLab-1 will collect temperature and acceleration data and store it for eventual transmission to Earth via the NanoRacks Platform/STELLA communication system. The purpose of the experiment is a tech demo.

Operational Requirements

The crew will plug in the NanoRacks ArduLab-1 into a NanoRacks Platform to operate. Once operations are completed the NanoRacks ArduLab-1 is removed from the NanoRacks Platform for disposal.
