AMSAT – The Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation

GOLF CubeSat Program – The next phase of AMSAT’s CubeSat program and an important part of AMSAT’s strategic goals involving high altitude, wide access satellite missions. GOLF will serve as a testbed for new technologies, including software-defined microwave transponders, attitude determination and control systems, and more. Construction of the first GOLF CubeSat, GOLF-TEE (Technology Evaluation Environment), is scheduled to be completed late this year.

Fox-1 CubeSat Program – AMSAT’s first CubeSat program. Begun in 2009, four of the five Fox-1 CubeSats are now in orbit (AO-85, AO-91, AO-92, and AO-95). The final Fox-1 CubeSat, Fox-1E (RadFxSat-2), is complete and scheduled for launch no earlier than the second quarter of 2020.

Linear Transponder Module (LTM) – Let Us Do the Talking for You! AMSAT’s Linear Transponder Module (LTM) provides a proven, plug-and-play communications solution for your CubeSat program, including a VHF/UHF telemetry beacon, command receiver, and linear transponder. The first of these modules is currently in orbit and operational aboard HuskySat-OSCAR 107. Contact us for more information.

ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) – ARISS lets students worldwide experience the excitement of talking directly with crew members of the International Space Station through amateur radio. The first flight unit of the next generation ARISS InterOperable Radio System launched to the ISS in March. For more information, see the ARISS website.

AREx (Amateur Radio Exploration) – Fly Me to the Moon! The AMSAT Board of Directors has made a commitment to support amateur radio’s inclusion on NASA’s Gateway, a small spaceship in orbit around the Moon with living quarters for astronauts, a lab for science and research, ports for visiting spacecraft, and more.

AMSAT Education – Where the Sky Is NOT the Limit! AMSAT is full of opportunities for young men and women with big dreams and an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to become the next generation of innovators in aerospace and advanced communications fields.

CubeSat Simulator – A project of AMSAT’s Educational Relations department, the AMSAT CubeSat Simulator is a low-cost satellite emulator that runs on solar panels and batteries, transmits UHF radio telemetry, has a 3D printed frame, and can be extended by additional sensors and modules. For more information, see the CubeSat Simulator website.

Successful completion of AMSAT’s projects requires a considerable amount of funding and volunteer effort. Please consider volunteering or donating today.
