Triton 1 [ISIS]
Triton 1 and 2 are 3U CubeSat nanosats developed by ISIS-BV (Innovative Solutions In Space BV) to test new technologies in space.
The purpose of the Triton satellites is a radio science mission which aims to test an experimental advanced AIS (Automatic Identification System) receiver. Telemetry decoding software will be made available which will allow radio amateur operators to listen to periodic downlink broadcasts containing housekeeping telemetry, payload telemetry as well as received AIS messages.
The planned mission duration of the science mission is three months, with the amateur radio mission planned to continue as long as possible after the science mission finishes.
Triton 1 was successfully launched in November 2013 on a Dnepr rocket.
Triton 2 has been put on hold and it is unclear, when or if the project will commence.
