SmallSats 小衛星 (updated: 11/12/2023)

We have participated the following SmallSats science missions and rewarded successful scientific results:


  • ROCSAT-1/Ionospheric Plasma and Electrodynamics Instrument (IPEI) Science Data Distribution Center (SDDC) 中華衛星一號/電離層電漿電動儀科學資料分送中心 (01/1999 - 06/2004): SPL has a heritage of ROCSAT-1 IPEI/SDDC and has archived all IPEI raw data and orbital information. All levels of IPEI data can be processed and analyzed by SPL.

  • FORMOSAT-5/Advanced Ionospheric Probe (AIP) 福爾摩沙衛星五號先進電離層探測儀研發製作計畫 (01/2012 - 12/2017): AIP flight model was delivered to NSPO on 10/08/2013. The 2nd SPEU/FM was delivered to NSPO on 09/04/2014. The satellite was launched at 08/25/2017 02:51 CST. After two-month in-orbit checkout, the development phase was finally completed in December 2017.

We are on-going the following science missions 我們正在進行以下之科學任務:

  • FORMOSAT-5/Advanced Ionospheric Probe (AIP) 福爾摩沙衛星五號先進電離層探測儀任務操作計畫 (12/2017 - 12/2019): AIP started a two-year mission operation phase since 12/28/2017. Now it has operated for more than 6 years.
