Taiwan CubeSat Program
« on: 09/10/2020 10:53 pm »
In 2020 Taiwan (NSPO) is planning to launch the 3 cubesats IDEASSat (3U), NutSat (2U) and YUSAT (1,5U). The orbit will be 450~600 km. No news about the launcher.
IDEASSAT (Ionospheric Dynamics Explorer and Attitude Subsystem Satellite) uses a successor to the Advanced Ionosphere Probe (AIP) on Formosat-5. From NSPO: "The CIP will be capable of monitoring the thermal, chemical, and electro-dynamic structure of the ionosphere, while also identifying plasma irregularities that can disrupt satellite and terrestrial radio communications through scintillation."

NutSat and YUSAT monitor air, ship and car traffic.

My opinion: To raise their profile and to be able to join NASA missions with instruments they should build CubeSats for beyond earth orbit sooner rather than later.

There are communication troubles with YUSAT 1 and IDEASSat.

IDEASSat retired last September and  YUSAT last October. NutSat will be launched during middle 2022.
