Latest information on our progress towards launching the picosatellite FOSSASAT-1.

FossaSat is a pocketqube satellite which is being developed using free and open source ethics, more detailed information about the hardware and software involved in this project can be found here.

Our vision is to build a picosatellite and put it in orbit around the Earth to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists by providing a means of deploying user developed code in space and allowing anyone in the world to freely access our telecommunications system with inexpensive LoRa IoT DIY receivers.

We aim to achieve this using a satellite that will be able to operate JavaScript programs developed by school and university members. We plan to host an inter-school/university competition and the winners will have their programs loaded onto the satellite along with prizes. All participants will have their names recorded on the system as it circles the globe.

We hope this proposal provides a mechanism to engage students in a wide variety of STEM subjects, Physics and Computer Science.
