Second-generation GENESIS satellites to replace the ones lost with radio amateur payloads.


These second-generation GENESIS satellites. Named GENESIS-G and GENESIS-J, are much more advanced than their predecessors, which were simple CW / ASK repeaters although they had a complex operating system and platform management software.
These new satellites, which have a more powerful on-board computer and updated software, allow functionalities of FM voice repeater, AFSK / FSK non-regenerative repeater up to 2400 bps, FSK regenerative repeater up to 50 bps, CW, pre-recorded digitized voice in FM and FSK telemetry at 50 bps .
