KITSAT-1: The Mission
Launched in 1992, KITSAT-1 was developed through a collaborative program between KAIST and the University of Surrey. The main objective of the KITSAT-1 program was to acquire satellite technology through the training and education of satellite engineers.
The success of the KITSAT-1 program marked the beginning of space technology development for South Korea, who now have their own commercial satellite manufacturer, SaTReC.
