Megaconstellations are being proposed as new space systems consisting of hundreds to thousands of individual satellites. The MegaMan project aims to design a mega-constellation of CubeSats in Low Earth Orbits. We are investigating a number of scientific use cases in astronomy and geoscience as well as the feasibility of providing IoT services from the constellation.
Delphini-1 is AU's first CubeSat in space. It is cementing AU as a participant in the new space era. We are contributing with the design and operation of Delphini-1 taking re
sponsibility of the up/down link communication channel. We are operating the UHF ground station to communication with the satellite.
