Description

AISTECHSAT 1 is a 2U CubeSat developed by Aistech to help with maritime and aeronautical tracking as a prototype for a larger constellation.

The satellites provide aircraft tracking tracking via an ADS-B receiver. Also a bidirectional communication system is on board to send and receive automatic information from the vessel or remote asset worldwide.

Aistech plans initially a constellation of 25 such Danu nanosatellites encircling the planet. Eventually 102 satellites in 2022 are envisioned.
