    Description

    NanoRacks-ArduLab-1 Tech Demo (NanoRacks- ArduLab-1)is a technical demonstration of the ArduLab microcontroller board system for use with the NanoRacks modular experiment system.  The ArduLab has simple measuring instruments (temperature, acceleration) to demonstrate the utility of the ArduLab system for future experimental use.  Data from the ArduLab is downlinked for analysis.

     

    NanoRacks-ArduLab-1 is a 1.5U format NanoRacks Module and is approximately 100 mm by 100 mm by  150 mm in size, and weighs approximately 1.5 kg.  It plugs into NanoRacks Platform-1 or -2 and is powered via a USB port.  NanoRacks-ArduLab-1 collects temperature and acceleration data and stores it for eventual transmission to Earth via the NanoRacks Platform/STELLA communication system.  The purpose of the experiment is a technical demonstration

    Operations

    Operational Requirements

    The unit simply needs to be plugged into a NanoRacks Platform.  There are no other operating constraints.

    Operational Protocols

    The crew will plugs in the NanoRacks- ArduLab-1 into a NanoRacks Platform to operate.  Once operations are completed the NanoRacks -ArduLab-1 is removed from the NanoRacks Platform for disposal.
