After the success of the SNAP-1 nano-satellite launched in June 2000, the Planetary Environments Group is now developing a pico-satellite (i.e. a sub-1 kg satellite) called PALMSAT. It is an ultra low-cost satellite suitable for student-based research and project activities. The satellite will carry highly integrated "credit-card" sized systems which should enable it to carry out a remote inspection mission - similar to SNAP-1.
