We are Open-Source!acubesat
[DISCLAIMER: This post was created while AcubeSAT was under the A.S.A.T. team. Since 15.01.2021, the AcubeSAT project is part of SpaceDot.]
Our CubeSat’s code for On-Board Computer is Open-Source!
What is open Source? Open source is a term denoting that a product includes permission to use its source code, design documents, or content. So, following the path of previous CubeSat teams, we have all our code uploaded on GitHub! That way we want to help future CubeSat teams to design and implement their own sattelite!
Having no expertise due to the lack of Space engineering department, we had to overcome some great obstacles in order to have a working code for On-Board Computer. Having all our code Open-Source will encourage more and more people to get involved with Space related activities, because they are going to have a groundwork to start with!
