> Read the article connected to the project.

Université Paris Diderot develops a student project of nano-satellite creation, within the Labex UnivEarthS. It is a project of the program JANUS CNES – French Space Agency – to coaching students satellites in France.

Initiated in 2013, this small satellite (30 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm), designed entirely by students, should be launched in 2019.

IGOsat horizon is primarily an educational project and progresses through successive generations of student work. Since the beginning of development, more than 150 students participated in the design, testing or simulations of the mission. It also has the support and expertise of researchers and professors from the University Paris Diderot and associated laboratories: APC, IPGP and AIM.
