D-Star One [German Orbital Systems]
D-Star One is a 3U CubeSat designed and built by German Orbital Systems as a technology demonstration for their planned CubeSat communications constellation.
The satellite is equipped with two D-Star communication modules onboard. These modules will be fully dedicated to the amateur radio community. Subsequent satellites will have enhanced capabilities and address larger potential customer groups.
The satellite was launched on 28 November 2017 as a copassenger on a Soyuz-2-1b Fregat-M rocket, but was lost due to an upper stage problem.
A reflight under the designation D-Star One v.1.1 Phoenix is planned for 2018.
