Template:Infobox spaceflight AubieSat-1 (OSCAR-71) is a CubeSat designed, built, and tested by undergraduate students at Auburn University. It was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base October 28, 2011 atop a Delta II rocket. This was a multi-payload mission with five other CubeSats, M-Cubed, DICE-1, DICE-2, Explorer-1 and RAX-2.


The purpose of AubieSat-1 was to accomplish several things:

  • Establish Auburn University as a university capable of developing satellites.
  • Provide workforce applicable experience for students.
  • Study and compare the effects of solar cell coatings.
  • Demonstrate a system bus that could be used at the baseline design for additional satellites later developed by the program.
