RE: Anusat?



If the description in the news article and PDF is correct it couldn't be a 
cubesat - it weighs ~50kg.  I suppose it could be a cubesat (they say less 
than 50kg and 1kg is certainly less than 50kg) but they would generally not 
use PSLV to launch a cubesat unless they are building their own version of 
the P-POD or getting one from Cal Poly.

They say that it's a store and forward type of digital satellite, but they 
don't indicate if it is using PacSat protocol or not.
