Fossa Systems is an association dedicated to the development of picosatellite technologies and more specifically, PocketQubes. These small satellites reduce development times to months and can be launched into space for less that the cost of a car.
Fossa Systems started the development of the first Spanish pocketqube spacecraft, FOSSASAT-1, in mid-2018. This open-source 1P satellite is experimenting with new spread spectrum LoRa technology for the internet of things and is a demonstrator for the new miniaturized architecture. It recently launched into orbit on the 10th Electron mission and has been operating for around 2 months.
We are currently working on our new FOSSASAT-2 2P architecture and will be launching it alongside the updated FOSSASAT-1B spacecraft in mid to late 2020.
