The launch is postponed and our event at the Lakeside Auditorium accordingly: Come see us on Wednesday 5 December from 18:00

AUSAT is a strategic project aiming at assessing, designing and developing nano-satellites for research

and education at Aarhus University. This is done across departments at Science and Technology and in close collaboration with the industry partner GomSpace A/S.

In the AUSAT project we are planning to launch a series of science related nanosatellites under the aigis of Aarhus University and in a close collaboration between three partners at the university: The Department of Physics and Astronomy, The Department of Engineering and The Department of Geoscience.

We are exploring the unique opportunities of synergies between industry and the university efforts of research and education. The importance of our endeavour is marked by the newly implemented Danish National Space Strategy published in June 2016.


Delphini-1 is the first mission under the AUSAT space programme. 

Delphini-1 is funded mainly by the Aarhus University Research Foundation (AUFF).

The European Space Agency, ESA, has offered Aarhus University a free launch. This is done due to the Danish membership of ESA and our participation in the International Space Station programme via the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science.
