ASELSAT [ASELSAN]

The turkish ASELSAT satellite is a 3U CubeSat for technology demonstrations.

ASELSAN has initiated ASELSAT 3U CubeSat Development Project to earn flight heritage for ASELSAN's indigenously developed X-Band transmitter. The X-Band Transmitter will send the optical data, which will be created by ASELSAT's camera payload, to the ground station. Also radiation dosimeters will collect statistical environmental data from the low orbit space for design activities.
