The GOLF 1 (Greater Orbit, Larger Footprint 1) is a 3U CubeSat educational mission that will host two-way amateur radio communications, analog and digital transponders, and two experiment payloads provided by students.
GOLF-1 will serve as a follow-on mission to GOLF-TEE, also to LEO. Launch is targeted for 2020-2021.
GOLF-1 will require a de-orbiting plan that is in compliance with NASA Procedural Requirements for Limiting Orbital Debris in order to be manifested on a launch, due to the high altitude AMSAT has requested.
It was selected in 2018 by NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) to be launched as part of the ELaNa program.
