VELOX 2 [NTU]
The VELOX-II mission is a Singaporean experimental nanosatellite mission. The project is part of NTU’s Undergraduate Satellite Program, which provides an opportunity for engineering students to participate in a multidisciplinary hands-on space project.
The 12 kilogramm 6U CubeSat sized VELOX-II will be carrying experimental satellite-based communication hardware developed by Addvalue Innovation Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of Singapore Exchange mainboard listed Addvalue Technologies Ltd. This unique payload transmits data it collects to a geostationary Inmarsat-4 L-band communications satellite. If proven successful in space, the payload will allow the VELOX-II to send data back to the NTU ground station from anywhere even if the satellite is not flying above Singapore, as is presently the case.
