AMSAT France bulletin #99-03




AMSAT-France Press Release 99-03

AMSAT-Russia, with the help of SCSC (Space Flight Control Centre) in
Moscow has contacted AMSAT-France in December 98 for the design and
manufacture of RF module and electronic PCBs similar to the ones used on
board RS-17 and RS-18 satellites. AMSAT-Russia was in charge of building
the satellite frame, integrating the VHF and electronic modules into the
frame and choosing and implementing the messages to be sent by the
satellite.
AMSAT-France has delivered the electronic modules on time (February 99)
with a preliminary version of software. All the AMSAT-France work has
been completed in less than 7 weeks.
The final version of the software has been sent via an express delivery
company, but it has been frozen by the russian customs.
Because of the planning, AMSAT-Russia did not use the final version of
software delivered by AMSAT-France.
The character of this project did not allow AMSAT-France to implement
its educational project.
AMSAT-France has been deeply involved in the RS-17 and RS-18 projects,
including technical support and flight model manufacture.
With the help of French schools and universities, AMSAT-France is now
developing the MAELLE amateur satellite project.
