MicroDragon [VNSC]

MicroDragon is a microsatellite developed by the Vietnam National Satellite Center (VNSC).

The MicroDragon satellite was designed and created by Vietnamese engineers, with the support of Japanese experts.

MicroDragon is a 50 kg satellite measuring 50 cm × 50 cm × 50 cm. The satellite observes the coastal areas of the country to evaluate water quality, navigate marine food resources and follow up on changes in coastal areas to inform Viet Nam's aquaculture breeding sector.

The satellite was launched as a secondary payload from Japan in 2019 on an Epsilon (2) CLPS launch vehicle.
