Countdown Begins for ASELSAT Cube Satellite

ASELSAT 3U Cube Satellite, developed entirely with ASELSAN resources within the scope of the self-sourced R&D Project, set off to Florida-USA on January 14, 2021 with SpaceX's Falcon-9 rocket to be placed in low earth orbit.

ASELSAT, which was developed by integrating ASELSAN-designed critical components into the platform produced by Istanbul Technical University, is expected to start its duty after the successful placement of the orbit.
