Summary or description

Abstract

Suborbital flights are a low-cost option for universities. To perform suborbital missions,

it is necessary to design, plan, test, verify, and validate each and every one of the subsystems

that integrate the payload without leaving the Earth. In Mexico, some experiments

have been carried out since the 1990s to test communication systems in case of disaster

and emergency. The Mexican Service Gondola (CSM) from 2015 to date has made suborbital

flights in conjunction with the National Polytechnic Institute and the group of

Protective Coatings Resistant to Thermal Changes and Cosmic Radiation (CRTCR) to test

communication systems and glass-ceramic coatings. Suborbital flights are a great opportunity

to explore the national territory and test new communication systems, structures,

and materials.
