Your destiny

AmbaSat - To the Edge of Space

May 2023 witnessed a remarkable achievement as two AmbaSat Space Satellites soared to an altitude of 29km above the Earth’s surface. Lifted into the sky by two High Altitude Balloons (HABs) launched from Welshpool in Wales, these AmbaSats recorded altitude and GPS location data, with telemetry transmitted in near real-time through the AmbaSat Prime Network and TTN, showcasing the incredible capabilities of these remarkable chipsat space satellites.
