The first and foremost mission of ISTSAT-1 is an educational one, being the “glue” that brings together students from different engineering programmes across our university in order to foster their enthusiasm for space science and technology, and confronting them with a number of interesting challenges that will contribute to complement their education.
ISTSAT-1 will be used for carrying out a feasibility study of the use of nanosatellites to receive the signals of the ADS-B system used in the monitoring of aircraft in areas not covered by terrestrial stations.
