FIRST PH SATELLITE DIWATA-1 TO LAUNCH ON WEDNESDAY
Posted on March 22, 2016

"The 50 kg DIWATA-1 microsatellite, named after the Filipino word for fairy, was handed over to the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency in January and is scheduled to be put into orbit at an altitude of 400 km above the Earth’s surface.

“DIWATA-1’s delivery to the ISS (takes us) one step further in the country’s long journey towards developing homegrown science and technology expertise and finally put the Philippines in the list of nations that have the capacity of venturing into space and beyond,” the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) said in a press release."

LOOK: Lockheed-Boeing rocket to launch spacecraft carrying Filipino satellite
March 22, 2016 Caleb Velasquez

PHL-Microsat 1 Diwata, the first Filipino-built microsatellite will start its three-day travel to the International Space Station (ISS) tomorrow morning (Philippine time) inside a resupply spacecraft to be launched by a rocket operated by the Lockheed Martin-Boeing joint venture United Launch Alliance (ULA).

The ULA rocket, Atlas V 401 will be launched at Cape Canaveral’s Space Launch Complex 41 (SLC-41) located at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, USA. The rocket will be launching to space Orbital ATK’s unmanned resupply spacecraft Cygnus named S.S. Rick Husband (Cygnus CRS OA-6) with approximately 3.5 tons of cargo.

Diwata – 55 centimeters long, 35 cm wide and 55 cm high, weighing some 50 kilograms – will be part of the payload which also consists of personal ISS crew supplies and scientific equipment. The resupply flight to ISS is under the Commercial Resupply Services contract with NASA.

Diwata will stay at the ISS for few weeks before deploying to space.

Diwata’s receiving station, Philippine Earth Data Resource and Observation (PEDRO), will be based in Subic. Diwata can examine the destruction caused on land by typhoons and rainstorms with an accuracy of up to five meters. It can also be useful in agriculture, forest cover monitoring and national security.

Filipino Master of Science students and scientists worked with Japanese institutions Hokkaido University (HU) and Tohoku University (TU) for the realization of this project.

NASA SET TO LAUNCH 1ST PH-MADE SATELLITE WITHIN 24 HOURS
Posted on March 22, 2016

Diwata-1, the Philippines’ first microsatellite, will be brought to the International Space Station (ISS) at 11 p.m. of March 22, Eastern Standard Time (11 a.m., March 23, Philippine Standard Time).

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) commercial provider Orbital ATK is set to launch its fifth mission to the ISS on March 22 (EST), and the company’s Cygnus spacecraft is scheduled to lift off on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket at 11:05 p.m. (EST) from Space Launch Complex 41 in Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, USA.

The Philippine Department of Science and Technology (DOST) said March 22 (EST) is a target launch date and is subject to change due to a variety of factors.

“NASA will make every attempt to notify the Philippines of changes at the soonest possible time,” the agency said.

At the ISS, meanwhile, Diwata-1 will be housed in the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM), nicknamed “Kibo.” Towards the end of April, the JEM Small Satellite Orbital Deployer (J-SSOD) will release Diwata-1 into space at an altitude of 400 kilometers from the earth’s surface.

The Philippines’ first microsatellite is expected to be in orbit for approximately 18-20 months and will be imaging the country twice daily.

While still in orbit, the same Filipino research team who assembled Diwata-1 targets to launch the second microsatellite (DIWATA-2) in late 2017 or early 2018.

Diwata-1 has four cameras that would continuously take pictures of the Philippines. These images will be used for research and in remote sensing.

Remote sensing “is a necessary technology for monitoring weather, disasters, as well as environmental issues” as described by Kohei Cho, Asian Association on Remote Sensing (AARS) general secretary.

In a previous interview with the Philippines News Agency, Cho noted that every country and every continent worldwide needs remote sensing, since environment, for instance, has no boundaries. He added that a country needs remote sensing to have good cooperation with the international framework.

”It has been proven to be capable of monitoring El Nino, too,” said Enrico Paringit during the 36th Asian Conference on Remote Sensing (ACRS) held in the country last year.

Paringit, 36th ACRS local chair, cited that the technologies in remote sensing include satellite with high resolution camera and sensors mapping flooding areas.

“The pictures that will be taken by Diwata-1 can also be used for tourism, as we could pick an image of the day and share it with you,” said Carlos Primo David, executive director of the DOST-Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research Division (PCIEERD).

Included in the Philippine government’s budget is providing a good microsatellite data storage facility in Subic.

A ground receiving station in Subic is tasked to receive Diwata-1 imagery as well as from selected commercial satellites.

According to PCIEERD, another facility is currently being constructed — the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman Microsatellite Research and Instructional facility which will be the hub of training for future space technology research and development activities.

About Diwata-1

In 2014, the DOST embarked on a research program to develop the necessary local expertise in space technology and allied emerging fields in science and engineering.

The flagship project of this effort is called the PhilMicrosat Program which is implemented by several departments in UP Diliman and DOST’s Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI).

DOST has also partnered with two universities in Japan to develop Diwata-1.

Diwata-1 was assembled by nine young Filipino engineers who were stationed in Japan to undergo an extensive course about microsatellite. The team had almost a year to finish the assembly and testing of Diwata-1.

It weighs 50 kg and is about the size of a “balikbayan box.”

The country’s microsatellite passed the component tests, first vibration tests, post-vibration electrical tests, off-gas test and fit checking according to PCIEERD. There was a continuous functionality tests of modules and sensors and software optimization.

Last Jan. 13, DOST representatives turned over Diwata-1 to Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

The agency had requested JAXA to release Diwata-1 at a time when the ISS is at the highest altitude (between March 21 and April 30). (PNA)

WATCH: Cygnus sets off for ISS with PH microsatellite Diwata-I
(UPDATED) NASA partner Orbital ATK sent its Cygnus cargo ship to the International Space Station, with it the Philippines' first microsatellite, the Diwata-I, in its payload

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – It's a routine resupply mission for the International Space Station – but for the Philippines, it made history.

NASA partner Orbital ATK sent its Cygnus cargo ship to the International Space Station on Tuesday, March 22 (Wednesday, March 23 in Manila), a resupply mission that carried the Philippines' first microsatellite, the Diwata-I, into space.

The unmanned spacecraft blasted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket at 11:05 pm (0305 GMT Wednesday).

Once in the ISS, the Diwata-I will be part of the KIBO Japanese Experiment Module, which will then release the microsatellite into space through the Japan Small Satellite deployer, the University of the Philippines said Tuesday.

Diwata-I – one of two microsatellites under the PHL-Microsat Program – is expected to "aid the country’s efforts in building essential capabilities that enhance and promote disaster risk reduction and management, agricultural productivity, resource assessment, and climate change studies through space technology," UP said.

Aside from Diwata-I, the trip will include an unprecedented fire experiment after the craft leaves the orbiting outpost.

Cygnus entered into orbit about 20 minutes after liftoff and will reach the International Space Station on Saturday, March 25, where it will dock with the help of the station's robotic arm in a procedure due to start at about 1040 GMT, according to NASA.

The launch will mark Orbital's fifth supply mission to the orbiting laboratory, as part of a of a $1.9 billion contract with NASA to deliver necessities to the astronauts living in space. – With Agence France-Presse / Rappler.com

PH microsatellite Diwata begins 3-day travel to Space Station
March 23, 2016 Joel Dizon

Filipino-built microsatellite PHL-Microsat 1 Diwata, onboard Orbital ATK’s unmanned resupply spacecraft Cygnus named S.S. Rick Husband, is now on its way to the International Space Station (ISS). Cygnus spacecraft has separated from United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket, NASA said after a successful launch at 11:05 am Philippine time.

“Tonight’s launch punctuated a clean countdown for the United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket and Orbital ATK Cygnus spacecraft. The two solar arrays on the Cygnus will open in about an hour, but right now the spacecraft is exactly where it needs to be and is in position to catch up to the International Space Station for a rendezvous and berthing Saturday morning (Saturday 6:40 pm in PH),” NASA said.

Aside from Diwata, the said spacecraft, carrying approximately 7,500 pounds of cargo, will also deliver ISS crew personal supplies, space gear, laptop, computer hardware, printer, vehicle hardware, cameras, camcorder, cables, and Human Research Program resupply to the ISS.

Diwata will stay at the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM) also known as Kibo at the ISS for few weeks before deploying to space. It will be deployed to space through JEM Small Satellite Orbital Deployer.

Filipino Master of Science students and scientists worked with Japanese institutions Hokkaido University (HU) and Tohoku University (TU) for the realization of first Filipino-built micro-satellite. The program used around PhP840 million with the Philippine government shouldering PhP324.8 million. Japanese universities shouldered the PhP515.92 million.

Diwata’s receiving station, Philippine Earth Data Resource and Observation (PEDRO), will be based in Subic. Diwata can examine the destruction caused on land by typhoons and rainstorms with an accuracy of up to five meters. It can also be useful in agriculture, forest cover monitoring and national security.
