Rui Rocha explains on our podcast the next steps of the ISTSat-1 enterprise, the first nanosatellite totally developed in Portugal. ISTSat-1 is a nanosatellite being developed under ESA’s Fly Your Satellite! program.
“The satellite is in its final stage, cannot be open anymore, and moves on to the vibration tests and to the vacuum chamber, which are the demanding tests to get the ticket to Ariane 6. However, the final integration will be critical. Fingers crossed!"
Rui Rocha is a researcher at the Instituto de Telecomunicações, a Professor at Instituto Superior Técnico - Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (DEEC), and one of the founders of IST NanosatLab.
