The Missouri S&T Satellite Team is currently building a satellite in two parts, MR SAT and MRS SAT. This is a microsatellite, significantly larger than a CubeSat but small enough to fit on a table top. KPE is building the electric power system, or rather, the power conversion portion of the EPS. This consists of:

  • Battery management system for Li-ion cells used on MR SAT
  • Maximum power point tracker for solar array on MR SAT
  • Power converters to provided regulated 3V3, 5V and 12V on each sub-satellite
