SAMSON-Dummy 1, 2, 3

SAMSON-Dummy were dummy satellites built to the 6U CubeSat standard to replace the three SAMSON satellites, which missed the ready date of the launch.

The SAMSON satellites were planned to be launched on a Russian Soyuz-2-1a Fregat-M launch in late 2018, but missed the ready date for this launch. The passive dummies were launched and deployed instead to avoid changing the launch configuration shortly before launch.
