MIR-SAT1 - Mauritius Imagery & Radiocommunication Satellite 1

Through the KiboCUBE Programme, the MIR-SAT1 has been offered a free launched to the International Space Station (ISS) for development in Space by JAXA. For the first time in it’s history, Mauritius will embark into new initiatives geared towards exploiting space/satellite technology for its socio-ecnomic benefitis.

OUR JOURNEY INTO SPACE...

Mission Aim & Objectives

Technology and knowledge transfer through the design, building, testing and operating satellite in space.

Promote small satellite technology in the country and its socio-economic benefits.

Primary Objective 1

Verify performance of onboard subsystems by receiving telemetry from the satellite and establish communication to and from the satellite.

Primary Objective 2

Collect images of the Rep. of Mauritius and its EEZ.

Secondary Objective

Experimental communication with other regional islands via the satellite (e.g. useful for emergency purposes such as cyclones, tsunamis, etc.)
