The satellite Trisat is the result of Slovenian knowledge and has been fully developed by Maribor Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and company SkyLabs. And now, it is ready for space launch, where it is expected to be carried by the VEGA carrier rocket from French Guiana on 9 September 2019. This is again a prove that a mutual cooperation between students and companies can bring great results and that such mutual cooperations help to facilitate knowledge and technology transfer between the university and the economy through innovations and technologies.
Members of the Laboratory for Electronic and Information Systems at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Maribor and researchers of SkyLabs d.o.o. successfully completed the assembly and testing of the TRISAT satellite, powered by the SkyLabs’ NanoSky I platform on 5th July 2019.
The satellite was then delivered to Delft in the Netherlands, where the TRISAT team integrated it into an ejection carrier in the clean room at the Dutch company Innovative Solutions In Space.
