What's Qarman?

 

QARMAN is the ”QubeSat for Aerothermodynamic Research and Measurements on AblatioN” of  the von Karman Institute, developed in the framework of the QB50 project.

The general system design is shown below. COTS (Commercial off-the-shelf) available sub-systems have been purchased from manufacturers. Items that are not commercially available are being developed by the QARMAN team. These include the OBC, the structure, the Data Acquisition board (DAQ) and the complete thermal protection system (the Survival Units, SU).
