SONATE [Universität Würzburg]

The Bayerische Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg's SONATE (SOlutus NAno satelliTE) satellite is a technology demonstration mission for highly autonomous payloads in the 3U CubeSat class.

Autonomous sensor and planning system (ASAP) has been developed to autonomously detects events of interest in its observed sensor data. Additionally, an autonomous diagnostic system (ADIA) has been developed, which can detect the cause of a spacecraft malfunction autonomously. The satellite features a camera.

SONATE was launched in July 2019 on a Russian Soyuz-2-1b Fregat rocket into a solar synchronous orbit.
