Beckman CubeSat

Now communication on the cubesat is just as important as any other subsystem in the CubeSat. Without contact with the CubeSat, it will be impossible to gain any control of the satellite along with extracting any data. When some CubeSats are launched, the ground station immediately loses contact of the pico-satellite and they are unable to obtain any data. This subsystem is focused on developing a ground station in which the team can obtain direct contact with the satellite when it is in orbit. In addition, the antenna in the Cubesat must be able to deploy properly and launch a radio signal to ground. The team must be able to adjust the quantity and length of the transmission.
