The ArduSat Arduino Adapter Module (ASAAM) lets you quickly and easily connect any regular Arduino-compatible board into a CubeSat satellite stack.
Prototyping satellite projects is typically slow and expensive. That has all changed with ArduSat, the project to put an Arduino-compatible satellite into orbit in July 2013 and to put real satellite hardware into the hands of hobbyists and students around the world. Now you can plug any handy Arduino straight into the ASAAM, fit the ASAAM into a CubeSat-format satellite stack with other modules, and begin your prototyping right on your desk. Connect up your Arduino via USB just as you normally would, launch the Arduino IDE, and in minutes you're working with your own CubeSat-standard compliant satellite stack.
