the first Mongolian satellite
« on: 07/18/2012 09:35 AM »
apparently piggybacking on a US launch in the first quarter of 2013

also, interesting detail about the Soyuz 39 Mongolian Interkosmos flight:

The receiving station from the Salyut and Soyuz in 1981 was only one room

BTW I will be visiting Mongolia for the second time next month and I hope to document the few Soyuz memorabilia on show in Ulaanbaatar.

From the orbital inclination and altitude, I am wondering if the satellite will be carried aboard a Falcon-9 mission to ISS.

Or maybe a Cygnus launch as a less-likely alternative.

After the launch of the first satellite in 2017, Mongolian scientists are planning to launch a second satellite by 2020.

From the model shown in the article above, and the reported budget, it's a cubesat, so yes to either of the above.

The satellite is provisionally named NUMSAT-1, and is a 1U cubesat.  The project is sponsored by Kyushu Institute of Technology.

The Joint Global Multi-Nation Birds Satellite project. acronym as “Birds project.” is a cross-border interdisciplinary satellite project. for non-space faring countries supported by Japan (participating countries are; Ghana, Mongolia, Nigeria and Bangladesh) During this 2 years project., students shall design, develop and operate 5units of identical 1U CubeSats (1kg, 10cm cubic) belonging to the five participating countries and operated from 7 ground stations (operation is done at 7 ground stations; the 5 participating countries including Thailand and Taiwan) to form first time in the world a constellation of 5 CubeSats operated in 7 networked ground stations. 15 students from 6 of the 7 participating countries who belong to Graduate school of Engineering of the Kyushu Institute of Technology and enrolled as a Master or Doctoral degree students in Space Engineering International Course are executing this project. with the support of 4 faculty members. This project. hopes to provide great leverage to students from developing nations for hands on satellite project.
