Momentus Inc. and Gran Systems have signed a service agreement for Gran System’s 2U CubeSat NUTSAT to fly on Momentus’ December 2020 Vigoride demo mission.
The 2U NUTSAT was designed by the National Formosa University with the backing of the National Space Organization (NSPO) in Taiwan. One of the three NSPO cubesats launching this year, NUTSAT is a systems engineering training education program integrating an ADS-B receiver onto the cubesat to demonstrate and enhance commercial aviation safety technology. NUTSAT is the first of the three cubesats to go for the launch integration.
“We are pleased that Momentus will accommodate NUTSAT,” said Kaung-Han Ke, CEO of Gran Systems. “NUTSAT was shipped and delivered to Momentus the same hour that Momentus made a big announcement which upped their profile in investor relations, and we are very happy to be onboard.”
“This is the first NSPO cubesat mission that Momentus will support,” said Mikhail Kokorich, CEO of Momentus. “We are thrilled to be expanding business opportunities and growing with the Taiwanese new space sector where our technology is uniquely positioned.”
