HealthSat-2: Launched 1993

Healthsat-2 was a commercial digital Store and Forward satellite for medical communications using low cost, portable ground stations.

It was launched on the 25th September 1993, and joined HealthSat-1 (UoSAT-3) as the second SSTL microsatellite in the HealthNet global communications system of SatelLife, a U.S. non-profit organization. HealthNet provided desperately needed low cost 'last mile' communication links between medical institutions and health programmes in the developing world.
