CubeSat—Platform for Low-Cost Evaluation of Space Technology and Systems Engineering

Speaker: Sangho Shin, PhD, Rowan University Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering

The MemSat, the first academic CubeSat from New Jersey, is a nanosatellite set to launch in Q2 2018 as a part of the NASA sponsored ELaNa 23 program. MemSat aims at investigating future space technology that can significantly advance mission capabilities, extend opportunities for future space activities, and improve cost-benefits. MemSat will experimentally evaluate functionalities of emerging memristor memory systems over the standard silicon-based ones in the space environment. Compared to existing memory systems such as DRAM and Flash memory, resistive memory—memristor—is expected to exhibit superior performance in terms of manufacturing cost, energy consumption, storage density, access speed, among many others. In particular, the memristor technology holds the promising potential to provide increased resilience to radiation, and thus robustness against Single Event Upset (SEU). All of which make memristor technology an appealing alternative to conventional memory technologies, to support deep-space exploration missions that require many years of operation and massive storage to record data. This talk also addresses how Rowan is utilizing the CubeSat development project as an experiential education platform for systems-on-a-system integration.
