SaudiComsat 1 & 2 [University of Arizona]

The satellites of the SaudiComsat series are the first generation of Saudi Arabian low orbit micro-communications satellites (12 kg each) for commercial use, for the purpose of store and forward communications.

The satellites built at the KACST Space Research Institute are based on the Saudisat 1 design. Reportedly they are part of a 24 satellite constellation planed to be launched in the future with different orbits to cover large parts of the world.
