SCOOB-II is the second satellite built in the Student Satellite Series (S3- II) at the Satellite Research Centre (SaRC) at NTU School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering under its hands-on student training program. The first satellite was the Student Satellite Series (S3-I) or SCOOB-I was launched in 2022 July and worked successfully demonstrating space technology in many areas developed by students at SaRC. SCOOB-II is the size of a shoe box and carries a advanced electronics test operations in space. Students on the spacecraft through the Design and innovation Projects (DIP), Final Year Projects (FYP), Masters and PhD work.
The SCOOB-II spacecrafts will carry an attitude determination control system that will help the spacecraft point at the sun and two deployable solar panels that will help SCOOB-II to generate about 3 times the power that was generated from SCOOB-I. This will enable SCOOB-II to run the power intensive customer payload.
