ISTSAT 1, originally known as ISTnanosat 1, is a 2U-CubeSat designed by the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Portugal.
ISTSAT-1 will be used for carrying out a feasibility study of the use of nanosatellites to receive the signals of the ADS-B system used in the monitoring of aircraft in areas not covered by terrestrial stations, like oceanic routes or remote areas.
ISTSAT 1 was selected by ESA's "Fly Your Satellite!" Program in 2017 to be deployed in orbit from the ISS in 2018 or 2019.
