Paper Abstract

The astronaut deployable satellite (ADSAT) is the third in a series of satellites being designed and built by students, faculty, and local engineers at Weber State University. These satellites have been an excellent vehicle for providing realistic engineering experiences for the students. The ADSAT is designed to be launched from the space shuttle by an astronaut. It will be capable of sending back to earth voice messages concerning the onboard experiments. The synthesized voice messages can be received by inexpensive scanners on the ground.
