Third satellite of a CubeSat constellation whose mission is to provide cryptographic applications in space. Cryptosat is authorized to launch and operate CRYPTO3 through Germany’s Bundesnetzagentur (“BNetzA”). The constellation is in a developmental phase, and the experimental operations proposed in this application will assist in proof of performance for the constellation.
A pair of Iridium 9603 transceiver modems will be installed on CRYPTO3 to communicate with the Iridium constellation. Transmissions will consist of blockchain ledger information, cryptographic primitives such as zero-knowledge proofs, random numbers as well as satellite commands, and telemetry.
