RSP 00

RSP 00 [Ryman Sat Project]

RSP 00 is a educational 1U CubeSat built by the Ryman Sat Project, a project where ordinary office workers (salaryman in Japanese), who are not involved in space exploration, can contribute on making space exploration more accessible for everyone.

It has following objectives:

  • Launch messages collected from the public
  • Send signal by Digitalker or Morse from the spacecraft and receive it with radio amateurs and children
  • Hold a space science class using images taken by a camera carried on the spacecraft
  • Conduct the experiment of high speed transmission of image data by p/4QPSK transmitter and receiver

The satellite was launched on board of HTV 7 on an H-2B-304 rocket to be delivered to the ISS, from where it was deployed via the JEM airlock.

A second similar satellite, RSP 01 was launched in 2021.
