CUAVA-1 successfully deployed into orbit from the International Space Station (ISS) on 6 October at 21:55 (Aust.EDT). The event was live-streamed by JAXA and CUAVA Director, Iver Cairns, was on hand to give the ‘Go/No go‘ call for deployment.
A link to the JAXA live-stream recording follows.
CUAVA-1 has been on board the ISS awaiting deployment since Space-X Cargo Dragon module on a resupply mission docked with the International Space Station on August 30.
The CUAVA team are now waiting for confirmation of successful communication from the satellite.
Congratulations to the CUAVA-1 mission team!
