Preliminary Design Review(PDR) of the BCCSAT-1 has been done on the 11th December 2018. Bccspace Program has invited Jaxa’s engineer, and aerospace engineering professors, from Thailand and Japan, to visit and review the design of the engineering model (EM): They pointed out some possible errors that might happen out in space, and gave the Bccspace Program’s students advices and ways to improve on the future flight model (FM).
Our space program students have participated in the Cansat Thailand 2018 between the 7 – 9 December at the Thailand national science museum. Although we did not win, but this competition gave us a lot of new experiences that makes we know what is our mistake and what we need to improve in the future.

Since building an antenna provided with the manpower an information we have is not sufficient; on November the 4th 2018 a group of us went to The Radio Amateur Society of Thailand (RAST) to ask for their help building an amateur antenna. We are very lucky to have RAST see our potential, and so they decided to host a test in our school to see if we are eligible enough to use their radio frequencies.
