The IRIS A (Intelligent Remote-Sensing and Internet Satellite) nanosatellite is a technology demonstration 2U CubeSat of the National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) of Tainan, Taiwan.

The mission objective is to demonstrate Internet-of-Things (IoT) communication technology in space. Techniques are developed to compensate for the significant attenuation and Doppler shift in the mission so that ground measurements can be uplinked, stored, and forwarded. It is based on the Phoenix satellite.

The IRIS-A payload consists of

  • Simple Camera (LISCOTECH)
  • LoRa Receiver (LETSCOM)
  • GPSR Device (NSPO)
  • Reference Clock (NCKU)
Nation: Taiwan (Republic of China)
Type / Application: Technology
Operator: National Cheng Kung University (NCKU)
Configuration: CubeSat (2U)
Power: 2 deployable, fixed solar arrays, body mounted solar cells, batteries
