For the past 18 months we have been working to design a 2U cubesat (UNSW-EC0) that can participate in the EU FP7 QB50 project. The CubeSat will be launched as part of the QB50 project which will deploy a network 50 CubeSats into a 'string-of-pearls' configuration in 2015 to perform atmospheric sounding in the thermosphere.

We are now at the point where we are preparing the final documentation for the Critical Design Review and it would be an opportune time to have a QB50 Workshop for all participants (current and future). This one day workshop is to be held in EE-G3, UNSW on Friday 29 November 2013, will bring together speakers from each aspect of the CubeSat design. Discussions will cover the QB50 experiment goals and requirements, the cubesat system design, the UNSW/NICTA payloads and experiments and the current progress/needs of the project.
