On January 14-15, 2017 we had a pleasure to visit Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) at Technology Forum on Student Micro/nanosatellites. PW-Sat2 was represented in China by the project coordinator Inna Uwarowa, who gave a presentation about current status of our satellite, our works and developed mission. We are very glad and grateful for the invitation and warm reception. We would like to express our special thanks to the Harbin Institute of Technology for taking care of the travel and accommodation of our representative.
In 2015 students at HIT finished their satellite called LilacSat-2 that was launched into orbit on Chang Zheng 6 (CZ-6) rocket from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center.
LilacSat-2 is low-cost, nano-satellite for education, amateur radio communication and technology demonstration, built by a team of 15 students of Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT). It is a cube-shaped 20 cm × 20 cm × 20 cm satellite with a weight of 11 kg. LilacSat-2 provides hands-on experience for students who would not otherwise have the opportunity to build flight hardware for a space mission. The training these students gain by working on this project will better prepare them for work in the aerospace industry. Source
Below you may find some photos from the event. On our stand we presented full-scale mockup of PW-Sat2 with its deorbit sail.
