Colorado to Launch with Modified RAX Software

We’re excited to announce that our colleagues at the University of Colorado at Boulder will be using modified RAX beacon decoding software on their newest CubeSat, the Colorado Student Space Weather Experiment (CSSWE).  Ben Kempke, chief engineer of the RAX mission, adapted our beacon decoding software so that it can work with CSSWE packets.


Like RAX, CSSWE is an NSF sponsored CubeSat.  It is scheduled to launch tonight from Vandenberg Air Force Base.  You can watch the launch here.
