･ FLIGHT HERITAGES
ARTSAT KIT can actually be launched and operated in space because ARTSAT KIT is designed based on ARTSAT1: INVADER which has 6 months of on-orbit flight heritage.
*You may need professional assistance for such things as procurement of a ground station, radio licensing, vibration testing, and communications testing prior to launch. We can support all of these aspects.
This satellite kit has been developed by experienced engineers. Detailed specification documents provide you broader knowledge about the satellite design.
･ FULLY BUILT ELECTRONICS PARTS
You don’t need to worry about the nightmare of soldering any more! The kit allows you to focus on the mechanical and software development.
･ OPEN SOURCE CODES
You can access source codes directly via Github. Configure your missions as you like.
･ SUITABLE FOR “STEM” EDUCATION
Your students can learn about the basics of systems engineering through this satellite kit which includes detailed spec sheets.
･ WILL ARTSAT BECOME SPACE DEBRIS?
No. We will give guidance to our customer to launch into an appropriate orbit to satisfy the 25 year rule for de-orbit. Normally this size of satellite will de-orbit in less than a year.
