COM Team has the task of preparing our satellite to send and receive signals from ground station. Communication module will contain 2 omnidirectional half-duplex antennas for VHF and UHF frequencies, S-band antenna with a higher bandwidth and a unit controlling data transfer. Antennas will be used to receive telecommands by the satellite, sending information about the state of the satellite, data from Sun Sensor and photos made by on-board cameras. We have decided to build the communication module with components available on the market. They have high performance and reliability, so there is no reason to build this unit from scratch. COM Team is preparing a list of elements to buy: antennas and electronics.
