Demonstrate data transmission via Inmarsat geostationary communications satellite.


Experimental satellite-based communication hardware developed by Addvalue Innovation Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of Singapore Exchange mainboard listed Addvalue Technologies Ltd. This unique payload transmits data it collects to a Inmarsat geostationary communications satellite. If proven successful in space, the payload will allow the VELOX-II to send data back to the NTU ground station from anywhere even if the satellite is not flying above Singapore, as is presently the case.
