Educational mission and amateur radio communications.
Student Small Satellites project initiated by the Asia-Pacific Space Cooperation Organization (APSCO).
Platform for space technology learning and satellite engineering practice for students and teachers in APSCO member countries, through the design, development, on-orbit flight testing and application of small satellites to enhance space education in member countries, get together with member states to build a “Belt and Road” space information corridor to contribute to the development of the space educational system of APSCO member countries.
At the same time, the CAS-8 satellites will realize the synergy between the eight countries of APSCO to build an amateur radio alliance through space, adding new science popularization tools to young students in APSCO member countries for self-training, inter-communication and technical investigations, and also providing a new satellite platform for amateur radio enthusiasts around the world.
