  • Give the project its name : BIRDY

    25 March 2014

    Giving a Name is always a terrible thing! I finally selected BIRDY for "Bleeping Interplanetary Radiations Determination Yo-yo". Indeed, the projet looks to me like a little robotic migratory bird, more and more everyday. We don't know how long this story...

    I joined the BIRDY project during my master degree in Astrophysics and Space Engineering. Our teachers gave us the choice between working on a retro-engineering project or a Cubesat one. When Boris presented the project, my choice was done and I knew...

  • Our Dream, Our Mission.

    18 March 2014

    "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind". In 1969, Neil Amstrong and his copilot Buzz Aldrin put an end to decades of apprehension by leaving the first footprints on the moon. Apollo 11 was thus a clear success. Nevertheless, as Tsiolkovski...

  • Testing the navigation function

    05 September 2014

    Hi! During my internship I produced datasets to validate the future Navigation system of the CubeSat BIRDY. BIRDY will have to perform 3 important navigation tasks during the mission. The first one consists in orienting just after the jettison and taking...
