Pujiang 1 is a Chinese technology demonstration satellite.
Pujiang 1 is to demonstrate miniaturized satellite components like heat transfer pumps and microprocessors. It utilizes standardized "plug-n-play" payload interfaces to able to carry wide range of instruments on board. Also it has temperature sensors on board that uses WiFi to transmit data within the satellite. Aditionally it features a 3D-printed Titanium antenna structure.
