Documentations

This satellite kit has been developed by experienced engineers. Detailed spec documents provide you broader general knowledge about satellite.

Fully implemented Electronics parts

You don’t need to be bothered by the nightmare of soldering any more! The kit supports you to focus on the mechanism and software development.

Open codes

You can access source codes directly via Github. Configure your missions as you like and enjoy.

Suitable for “STEM” education

Your students can learn about all the basics of systems engineering through this satellite Kit coming with detailed spec sheets.

Being Space Debris?

No. We will give guidance to our customer not to launch higher orbit based on 25 years rule. Normally this size of satellite will de-orbit less than a year not being space debris.

Kit Story


ARTSAT KIT, a satellite kit is developed based on the satellite which has been launched on February 28, 2014 by H-IIA rocket from Japan. It had been fully functional for 6 months up in the space until reentering to the earth atmosphere. The original satellite“ ARTSAT:INVADER” was developed as the worlds first“ ART” Satellite as its name suggests. Mission hardware named“ Morikawa” integrated with ARDUINO compatible CPU can be programmed by common C++ utilizing SDK. You can make your own Satellite!
