ART SATELLITE INVADER

Outline INVADER is an ‘art satellite’ that realizes our 3 concepts. The concepts are; “Open”, “Physical”, and “ Aesthetic”. ・It is open satellite to be utilized widely in our society; ・It moves our feeling and emotions physically as a work of art; ・Its function and visuals are aesthetic and totally designed. By realizing these concepts, we would like to make satellites familiar to everybody, not only to specialists. The now-developing art satellite “ARTSAT1: INVADER(*)” is 10cm cubed, and weighs 1.8kg. It is a nano-satellite that meets “1U CubeSat standard”, which is the world-smallest standard of micro satellite, that was adopted at USSS Conference at 1999. The world-first CubeSat was successfully launched by the students in Tokyo University who created XI-IV, and in Tokyo Institute of Technology who created CUTE-I in June 30th, 2003. In order to spread the possibility of handmade DIY CubeSat by students, our “ARTSAT Project” carries the plan of creating the world-first art satellite forward; the satellite that will be used mainly for art.
