Cubesats allow students the possibility to have a true hands-on experience with the design, implementation and operation of a real aerospace experience. The aim of this project is to contiune the work made by others GranaSAT members in the design and building of a Testbed for its use within the CubeSat GranaSAT, picosatellite designed and implemented by students of the University of Granada. That kind of Testbeds, based on an air-bearing, have a expensive cost to be acquired for the GranaSAT project, so we have the intention to develop a low-cost Testbed for a Cubesat 1U platform. Specifically, some problems of the Testbed are going to be solved as the problem with the power supply and the Testbed will be programmed as a light detector, so that the Testbed will be oriented face to the light source. On the other and, in this project we will study and anylize the SDR systems (RTL-SDR and FUNcube Dongle) that are being used by the GranaSAT memberships for the signal reception and its accuracy will be measured.
