SONATE [Universität Würzburg]

The Bayerische Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg's SONATE (SONATE) satellite will demonstrate technology demonstrator 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 space-craft malfunction autonomously. The satellite fatures a camera.

SONATE will be launched in 2019 on a Russian Soyuz-2-1b Fregat-M rocket into a solar synchronous orbit.
