GPS Module

Hi CubeSat'ers,

I've seen on the CubeSat System Kit Chart that there is a GPS module. It's not in the Pumpkin price list so where could I inquire about these from?

Cheers, Chris

That module is strictly for terrestrial / non-space applications. It will work in a balloon launch, but not on orbit. It costs $399 and has the Trimble Lassen iQ/sQ on it. It needs to be revised up to the 104-pin CubeSat Kit bus (it has only the earlier, 80-pin bus) -- that's why it's not listed on the price sheet.

See http://www.cubesatkit.com/content/links.html for info on two space-rated GPS units.
