KiwiSAT amateur radio satellite in its "clean cabinet" being demonstrated at the 2013 Auckland Technology Convention
KiwiSAT, an amateur radio satellite developed by AMSAT-ZL, is to be New Zealand's first satellite. It is being designed and built by New Zealand radio amateurs supported by Massey University (Auckland) and various corporate sponsors.

The satellite, slightly larger than a basketball, is designed to connect with amateur radio stations world-wide, and to carry out experimental work in small satellite Attitude Determination and Control (ADAC). It is planned to be launched attached to a Russian Dnepr rocket (see launch date at this article).
