- UoSAT-5 (OSCAR-22), 1991-050B.
microsat launched on the second ARIANE (40) ASAP on mission V44 on the
17th July 1991 (01:46:31 GMT) alongside three other secondary payloads
ORBCOMM-X, SARA and TUBSAT-1, and main payload the European Space
Agency's ERS-1. UoSAT-5 carries a digital Store and Forward
communications and Earth Imaging payload, enhanced versions of the
UoSAT-4 payloads. The spacecraft currently operates in the amateur
satellite communications service providing a research test bed for new
and efficient LEO protocols. UoSAT-5 is operated from the SSTL,
Guildford, in the U.K. picture shows the spacecraft before launch. The
48.4kg microsatellite is box shaped with dimensions 350x350x650mm, with
four solar panels on the larger facets, and a 6m gravity gradient boom.
