Successful Deployment of MIR-SAT1

The MIR-SAT1 was successfully deployed into Space from the ISS via the KIBO Module on the 22 June 2021 at 14:55 (MUT). The first signals from the satellite were well-received in Australia and USA after the satellite had deployed its antennae and solar panels on orbit. As it passed for the first time over Mauritius at 16:56 on the same day, its beacon signals were well-received by the Ground Control Station at the MRIC.
