On December 3rd, 2018, ExseedSat was launched on a Falcon 9 vehicle from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Part of Spaceflight’s SSO-A: Smallsat Express launch.
ExseedSat was built by a team of Indian radio hams including Ashhar Farhan (VU2ESE), George Phillips (VU2GT), Gurudutta Panda (VU3GDP), Sasi Bhusan (VU3ELR), and Nitin Mutin (VU3TYG). Initial telemetry has been received around the world.
At the request of Exseed Space, AMSAT hereby designates ExseedSat as VUsat-OSCAR 96 (VO-96).
We congratulate the owners and operators of VO-96, thank them for their contribution to the amateur satellite community, and wish them continued success on this and future projects.
