SAT-1 Initiative

SAT-1 Initiative

is creating spacecraft.

$0

per month
The SAT-1 Initiative is a space technology non-profit.

We give young engineers, scientists and creators the opportunity to hone their skills and demonstrate ingenuity by developing small spacecraft and innovative technologies. 

The Initiative is putting creative minds at work to solve complex engineering and scientific problems, with a focus on producing cascading technological benefits. The first phase of our quest begins with a small step - Efir, a 1U technology demonstration CubeSat to track the health of our planet's forest systems. 

This will be followed by larger CubeSats on Lunar and interplanetary missions. Each of them will demonstrate a new technology in communications, propulsion, energy, data processing or materials. Each of these missions will be done in partnership with universities, companies and R&D entities, spreading the benefits far and wide and speeding up our expansion into space. 
Tiers
Stargazer
$5 or more per month

You love space, you love what we do, you're with us. And we are truly thankful! Every once in a while we'll randomly select a stargazer to join us for a drink and some fun conversations about the Universe and all the matter(s) in it.

Junior Investigator
$25 or more per month

Looking at the stars and following isn't enough - you want the technical details, and we'll give them to you. Junior Investigators can call us over Skype or get some tips for their science projects. 

Flight Ops
$150 or more per month

Flight Ops means you're part of our close-knit family. You can see first-hand how our first CubeSat will be assembled, and you'll be invited to witness the launch of each mission. 

Savior of the Galaxy
$2,000 or more per month

Don't join this tier unless you can drive a 6-wheeled vehicle on distant planets.
