Speaker Topic for this Month:
Chris Wachs, WA2KDL
The goal of the GOLF program is to work by steps through a series of increasingly capable spacecraft to learn skills and systems for which we do not yet have any low-risk experience. Among these are active attitude control, deployable/steerable solar panels, radiation tolerance for Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) components in higher orbits, and propulsion. Status of the program and transponder details will be presented along with a Q&A session after the 45 min presentation. The GOLF program is a follow on to the AMSAT FOX program satellites AO-85, AO-91 and AO-92.
