Bus: 6U-nanosatellite, Tyvak platform
Form: 10cmx20cmx30cm, 10kg
Mission: collect precise weather data by Radio Occultation (RO)
Payload RO technology: from GeoOptics, originally developed at NASA/JPL
The first satellite ever made in Monaco, OSM1-CICERO carried a sophisticated radio occultation (RO) payload originally conceived at JPL/NASA and its mission was to collect atmospheric/weather data. This satellite became part of the CICERO fleet promoted by GeoOptics and commercial data sales to NOAA, the world’s foremost weather agency, started within a few months after launch.
RoseyCubesat-1 is the first 1-U educational satellite resulting from OSM's STEMSAT educational program. Launch: 2023.
Assembled in OSM's laboratory, it is made from a 1-U platform from ISIS Space. It carries a dual-camera payload from MVP and will transmit telemetry and pictures to the 13-18 years-old students who participated in the program.
