STSAT 1

STSAT 1 [KAIST]

The STSAT-1 (Science and Technology SATellite-1), formerly known as KAISTSat 4 (Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology Satellite 4), program aims to develop a high performance small satellite bus, high performance scientific payload design and research on space science and develop advanced technology for future space missions.

The STSAT-1 payloads are

  • FIMS (Far-ultraviolet IMaging Spectrograph),
  • SST (Solid State Telescope) ,
  • DCS (Data Collection System),
  • NAST (Narrow Angle Star Sensor),
  • SPEAR (Spectroscopy of Plasma Evolution from Astrophysical Radiation)

The STSAT-1 was launched in September 2003.
