FossaSat 1 [Fossa Systems]
FossaSat 1 is a picosatellite developed by Fossa Systems, a non-profit association developing pocketqube picosatellite technology and democratizing access to space, to the 1P PocketQube form factor.
Main mission of the satellite is the testing of a new experimental RF chirp modulation called LoRa and to share educational data from space to the public. It features deployable solar panels. The project is also to foster the development of miniaturized and inexpensive satellite systems for space applications using off the shelf components.
The satellite will fly in late 2019 together with other PocketQubes and other satellites on an Electron KS launch vehicle.
