TechDemoSat-1: Launched 2014

UK industry and academia worked together with Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL) on a new innovative satellite to trial UK space technologies and provide an ‘in-orbit test facility’ for innovative UK payloads and software.

 At around one meter cubed (roughly the size of a washing machine) and a surprisingly light mass of around 150kg, TechDemoSat (TDS-1) carries eight payloads plus a mixture of heritage and new product development systems from SSTL.
