NUTS - NTNU Test Satellite, a Norwegian CubeSat Project
Our frame will be special! We are researching the posibility to use composite material. Read more.
The NUTS satellite will use two antennas, one for VHF and one for UHF. Both antennas will be flat turnstile antennas (crossed dipoles). Read more!

In addition to a UHF beacon, we have planned to build two tranceivers; one for VHF and one for UHF. We will use ham-radio frequencies. Read more.
The ADCS-system makes our satellite move. At least rotate in a controlled motion. Without the ADCS-system, we cannot point the payload camera towards the Earth. Read more.
The EPS-system gives the satellite life. It controlls the flow of current from the solarcells, via the battery bank and the back-plane to the different power consuming subsystems. Read more.
Our main payload will be an IR-camera for observing gravity waves in the upper atmosphere. Read more.
The On-Board Computer will provide computing power for the payload, as well as log events, issue commands to the other modules in the satellite and monitor the state of the whole system. It is also one of the backplane master modules, meaning it is able to control certain aspects of the backplane, as described in the backplane section. Read more!
Through the ground station we can communicate with NUTS and other satellites. Find out more!
