Fossa Systems is a non-profit juvenile association which is developing one of the smallest satellites ever made. Our objective is to democratize access to space, both regarding telecommunications and access to in-orbit hardware by using picosatellites that can fit in your pocket and can be launched for less than the cost of a car.
Our first satellite, FossaSat-1, will be launched into orbit later this year and will create the world’s first fully free & open source global telecommunications network. This will expand access to IoT telecommunications to millions of students and individuals worldwide.
Thanks to this new system, no ground-based infrastructure is needed to communicate without satellite. Using homemade <4 EUR receivers, any monitorization sensors or individuals can access the network.
We carry out educational workshops with schools on an international level, inspiring a new generation of young engineers and scientists. We give students the possibility of experimenting with space, in an open and free manner.
