Venta 1 [Ventspils University]
Venta 1 is a nanosatellite with Automatic Identification System (AIS) receivers for supervising ship traffic in Europe. The satellite is being built at the Ventspils University College, and the signals aired by the satellite will be received at the Ventspils International Radio Astronomy Center.
Venta-1 carries a LuxSpace 1st generation SATAIS receiver as the main payload. Additionally there is a small camera and a laser retroreflector.
Venta-1 will be stacked for launch together with Max Valier Sat. Both payloads will separate only in orbit after being deployed together by the PSLV launch vehicle.
