About NARSSCube Nanosatellite Program

  • NARSSCube program is a project started in July 2017, funded by Academy of scientific research in Egypt (ASRT). The project total fund is 13 million EGP (around 800 K USD) distributed among eleven partners, including universities, research entities, and industry.
  • The objective of the program is to build series of Nanosatellites: NARSSCube-1 (1 U Cubesat), NARSSCube-2 (1 U Cubesat) and NARSSCube-3 (3 U Cubesat); based on indigenous Egyptian capabilities.
  • Recently, the program extended with NARSSCube-SX, a 2 U cubesat with Experimental S-band transceiver.
  • The global objective of the program is to demonstrate, in orbit, the capabilities of the team to develop satellite subsystems.

NarssCube Satellites

is launched at September 2019 by Japanese Rocket H-2B JAXA; and released by November 2019. NARSSCube-1 has more power storage capabilities and higher ground imaging resolution:

30-11-2019: First Beacon has been received at Kyutech @ 11 AM CLT

01-12-2019: Cairo ground control station is now controlling the satellite. (commands are received with response from satellite)

01-12-2019: Cairo ground control station is now controlling the satellite. (commands are received with response from satellite)

9-12-2019: satellite ADCS system is now in standby mode.

Commands and telemetry operation in progress
