The CubeSat DeorbitSail built by researchers and radio amateurs at the Surrey Space Centre in Guildford carries a 1200 bps BPSK beacon on 145.975 MHz. It is expected to launch at 1627 UT on Friday, July 10.
DeorbitSail is a 3U CubeSat sized satellite with a deployable sail that will demonstrate rapid deorbiting.
