‘EIRSAT-1‘ stands for ‘Educational Irish Research Satellite’ and it will be Ireland’s first satellite. It is a 2U CubeSat being developed as part of the European Space Agency’s Fly Your Satellite programme.
The satellite which cost €1.5 million to develop will carry three science experiments and the downlink frequency for the data will be in the 145 MHz amateur radio band. It is expected to launch in 2023.
The British Interplanetary Society have an article about the new Irish satellite in their quarterly Space Chronicle journal. The January 2023 edition is available to members of the British Interplanetary Society… info HERE
