ŅuSat 1, ..., 98 (NewSat 1, ..., 98, Aleph-1 1, ..., 98)

ŅuSat 1 [Satellogic]

The Argentinian ŅuSat earth observation satellites form the Aleph-1 constellation developed and operated by Satellogic S.A.

The satellites in the constellation are identical 51 cm × 57 cm × 82 cm spacecraft of 37.5 kg mass. The satellites are equipped with an imaging system operating in visible light and infrared. The constellation will allow for commercially available real-time Earth imaging and video with a ground resolution of 1 m. The satellites were developed based on the experience gained on the BugSat 1 (Tita) prototype satellite.

An U/V transponder with 2 W of output power for 8 GHz downlink and 2 GHz uplink will be operating on 100 kHz bandwidth. For backup telemetry, designers are considering UHF transponder operating at 9k6 GFSK.

Additionally, ŅuSat-1 carries a U/V linear transponder called LUSEX provided by AMSAT Argentina (AMSAT-LU) to offer services to the HAM community.

The Aleph-1 constellation will initially consist of up to 90 satellites for weekly world remaps with the intention of ultimately having daily world remaps with approximately 300 satellites.

  • The first two satellites, ŅuSat 1 and 2 were launched as piggy-back payloads on a Chinese CZ-4B rocket in April 2016 from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center into a 500 km sun synchronous orbit with an inclination of 97.5°.
  • The third, ŅuSat 3, followed in 2017 also as piggy-back payloads on a Chinese CZ-4B rocket.
  • Another pair, ŅuSat 4 and 5 were launched in early 2018 as piggy-back payloads on a Chinese CZ-2D (2) rocket.
  • Two more, ŅuSat 7 and 8 were launched in January 2020 also as piggy-back payloads on a Chinese CZ-2D (2) rocket.
  • ŅuSat 6 will follow in June 2020 on a multi-satellite launch on a Vega rocket.
  • 13 additional satellites will be launched in 2020 on a dedicated CZ-6 rocket.
  • The remaining 72 satellites of the initial 90-satellite constellation will be launched on a mix of different launch vehicles.
