IHI-Sat [IHI Corporation]
IHI-Sat is a technological CubeSat (3U) developed jointly by IHI Corporation and the Space Robotics Laboratory (SRL) of Tohoku University. The purpose of IHI-SAT is to demonstrate an AIS (Automatic Identification System) receiving system that collects ship identification information at sea and transfers it to ground stations to keep track of the congestion situation at sea.
IHI-SAT will be released into space by the microsatellite release mechanism from the Japanese Experiment Module "Kibo" on the ISS and will be in operation for about one year.
