FossaSat 2 [Fossa Systems]
FossaSat 2 is a picosatellite developed by Fossa Systems, a non-profit association developing pocketqube picosatellite technology and democratizing access to space, to the 2P 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 is to be launched on the maiden Firefly-α flight in late 2020.
