WARP-01 is a 1U CubeSat developed by a Japanese space startup, Warpspace Inc., and University of Tsukuba and launched by a Japanese launch service provider, Space BD Inc.
WARP-01’s mission objective is:
Using the COTS one-chip transceiver IC, demonstrate functionalities of original designed and developed transmitter in space environment by radio-wave transmission of CW beacon and various digital modulation such as GFSK, 4GFSK, FSK, 4FSK. This transceiver is designed from the scratch with ham-radio spirits. - To make satellite ham radio communication more popular, introduce fast, low-cost and flexible digital transceiver technology for worldwide amateur.
