CubeSat Launch

The KSF Space Foundation’s first suborbital rocket was developed in collaboration with the Kansas University Aerospace Department at Kansas University in the United States. This rocket was given the title JUPITER 1.

The KSF Space Foundation is excited to announce the construction of Jupiter 1, a reusable and affordable suborbital rocket. Sub-orbital spaceflights occur when a spacecraft’s trajectory does not complete one orbital revolution around the planet or moon from whence it was launched. Accelerations of two to six times the speed of sound are possible in such vehicles. By launching this rocket, the KSF Space Foundation hopes to knock down some of the barriers to space travel. The project’s overarching objective is to develop the most inexpensive Cubesat Kit for educational outreach already available on the market, and to establish a space mission within a budgetary that is feasible for academic system including universities, colleges, and schools. 

In the history of non-governmental organizations, the JUPITER 1 rocket was the first Mach +3 Suborbital rocket. In order to qualify as a suborbital rocket, a vehicle must be either entirely or primarily propelled by rockets, with the thrust being greater than the lift throughout the vast majority of the rocket-powered portion of the flight. The Aerospace Program at Kansas University and the Kansas Space Foundation collaborated on its creation (KSF Space Foundation). The JUPITER 1 rocket is an excellent and economical choice for universities due to its two-stage design and potential for reuse. It can reach an apogee more than 30,000 kilometers in altitude, has a length of 4 meters, and is supported by top-notch recovery technologies. The upcoming rocket launch will mark the beginning of an age of environmentally conscious space exploration thanks to the launch vehicle’s low price tag.

This rocket can also be used for flight testing of components and the transportation of Cubesats and Nanosatellites. This is done before the hardware is subjected to a real-world test scenario including an orbital flight in order to guarantee that it will pass all of the required testing, including heat, vibration, and telecommunication. Suborbital research would also benefit from a user-focused program that enables hands-on study by academics, engineers, technicians, and educators. Gaining technical and scientific knowledge is crucial, and frequent, affordable flights could expand prospects for experiential education, crowdsourced research, and individual participation in space exploration. If this proves feasible, it might revolutionize the way future generations of scientists, engineers, and space explorers are educated and trained by allowing them to work on many payloads from concept to operations while enrolled in the same program. Educators, students, and members of the general public can choose from a wealth of rewarding volunteer options.

The cubesat kit by KSF Space Foundation was made to make the assembling and coding much easier than traditional way in building a cubesat, the cubesat kit by KSF Space Foundation is made and designed for beginners and schools or universities who are developing their 1st cubesat / nanosatellite mission, the module is ready to fly to sub-orbital flight and was tested in microgravity in many similar space missions. The cost of cubesat kit by KSF Space considered the world’s cheapest kit out there.
