    Abstract:  The goal of this workshop would be to construct a “CubeSat Simulator Lite.” The CubeSatSim is a low-cost satellite emulator that runs on solar panels and batteries, transmits UHF radio telemetry, has a 3D printed frame, and can be extended by additional sensors and modules.

    The CubeSatSim has the following features:

    • Working solar panels and rechargeable batteries

    • Multi-channel voltage, current, and temperature telemetry transmitted in the Amateur Radio UHF band

    • Telemetry decoding using FoxTelem software or APRS software

    • STEM Payload board with STM32F103C8T6 “Blue Pill” Arduino compatible & sensors

    • Tape measure monopole or SMA antenna, Integrated Band Pass Filter

    We run through the installation of the software via a screensharing method, and will show participants how to setup a Raspberry Pi, set up the device, install the necessary packages, attach a necessary antenna, and view the transmitted data using a software defined radio.

    Abstract:  Deep space communications utilize TCP/IP protocols with some added assistance from a TCP Convergence Layer and the Bundle Protocol. In this workshop, participants will examine the store-and-forward techniques used to transmit "bundles" of information from one host to another via a relay system. Using the latest version of Wireshark, participants will examine the TCP Convergence Header and locate the first packet of a bundle and the first and second legs of the relay process, as reassembled by Wireshark. After identifying the content contained within the bundle, participants will create a filter to locate the last packet of a bundle and examine key fields of the Bundle Protocol, including fields that define priority, destination type, endpoint IDs, and reporting of bundle delivery.

  • Nyan Sat Workshop
    August 7, 2020  9:00 am - 4:00 pm PDT

    Abstract:  What’s another way to hack a satellite? Through ground stations. 

    Nyansat consists of three fun, non-competitive challenges: building your own satellite tracking antenna, exploiting a ground station modem, and participating in our livestreamed, internet-accessible, community ground station event.

  • Understanding Space Though a Cybersecurity Lens
    August 7, 2020  10:00 am - 1:30 pm PDT
    Read more...

    Abstract:  This exciting, fast-paced course delivers the "big picture" of space missions from cradle to grave. Understanding Space is the ideal course for technical or non-technical professionals new to the space industry or who need a refresher on the fundamentals. 

    Learning outcomes will be: 
    - Gain Core Space Knowledge 
    - Comprehend space mission Capabilities, Trade-offs and Limitations 
    - Apply Space Concepts to real-world problems 
    - Analyze Typical Space Problems 
    - Synthesize concepts to Design a Space Mission 
    - Evaluate basic technical and programmatic space issues 

    This will be a half-day course instead of the normal 2-day course.

    Abstract:  A huge hit at Def Con 27, we’ve partnered with the Defense Digital Service to bring back Bricks-In-The-Air for #DEFCON28SafeMode. Whether you’re a noob or a pro, this is your chance to attempt sending messages to mock LEGO aircraft over I2C to learn and experiment with direct injection attacks on a data bus.

    Abstract:  Can you Hack-A-Sat? You won’t know until you try! Intended for noobs, CPX SimpleSat was built to allow you to experiment with attacking a mock satellite through a ground station, mimicking the types of commands used in Hack-a-Sat to gain control of the Satellite. No previous experience required. Just curiosity and a willingness to learn!

    Abstract: If CPX SimpleSat was, well, too simple, try your hand at hacking DDSat-1. Here you’ll get to experiment with RF exploitation by attacking a mock satellite over RF while it is talking to a mock ground station. You’ll be able to mimic the style of RF commands being generated as a part of Hack-a-Sat, but in a more simplified and user friendly manner.
