Educational mission and capacity building in the nation.
Build the capabilities of Kuwaiti youth – specifically in designing and building satellites, to provide students with hands-on education and to increase access to space. Orbital Space hopes for this project to be the seed for Kuwait’s National Space program.
The program is free of charge and any student around the world can take part in it. Students will be able to submit proposals for onboard firmware/software related to satellite operations, signal processing etc. and the best proposals will be thoroughly checked on the ground and uploaded on the satellite as part of its operations. The radio amateur community will be able to review this code and receive its output/results and take part of student teams.
