On January 18, 2019, NEXUS was launched on an Epsilon launch vehicle from the JAXA Uchinoura Space Center in Japan.
NEXUS (NExt generation X Unique Satellite) is a satellite developed jointly by Nihon University College of Science and Technology and the Japan Amateur Satellite Association (JAMSAT).
NEXUS demonstrates several new amateur satellite communication technologies, and includes a mode V/u linear transponder.
Telemetry has been received and decoded around the world since the launch, and the transponder was successfully tested on January 26th.
