Help get OirthirSAT to Space!
OirthirSAT is comprised of an interdisciplinary team and is looking for additional students to join and help to integrate our 3U nanosatellite. Roles will begin with an initial onboarding period where you will shadow and assist current team members before taking over the role.
We require students based at the University of Glasgow with at least 18 months remaining of their degree. This means that you must be enrolled at the University of Glasgow for the 2023/24 academic year. E.g. currently in 4th year of a 5-year MEng/MSc/MA, 3rd year of a 4-year BEng/BSc/BA, or midway through a PhD. This is to ensure the continuity of the team through a compressed timeline.

OirthirSAT AIT Engineers are responsible for the integration of the major subsystem components and completion of the test plan to verify that the platform meets the system requirements. The successful candidate will assist with developing test plans for components. Experience with hardware and electrical test equipment is beneficial.
SOCIAL MEDIA AND BRANDING MANAGER
OirthirSAT is looking for a Social Media and Branding manager to help expand the reach of the OirthirSAT network. Duties will involve posting updates, relevant articles, and news on social media accounts and the website.

The OirthirSAT mission ('or-hear' being Scottish Gaelic for 'coast') aims to provide rapid and simplistic measures of coastal change, arming decision-makers with the best tools to identify and support vulnerable coastal communities.
ONBOARD PROCESSING OF COASTAL IMAGES
OirthirSAT will automatically process EO images captured and extract shoreline boundaries onboard, to rapidly provide coastal researchers access to processed, and standardised datasets for coastal change/flood monitoring
VEGETATION BOUNDARY EXTRACTION
Different types of vegetation will help the onboard processing capability to extract edge data from the images captured by the Multispectral Imager.
OirthirSAT features a novel Dragsail design to deorbit the CubeSat after the mission duration, making it a sustainable mission by minimising Space Debris.
