Our satellite "RSP-01" is a CubeSat developed by RymanSat Project—a volunteer-based private space exploration organization. The main mission is to take a "Selfie" with the Earth by extending its telescopic arm in space while orbiting the Earth. Other missions of RSP-01 are recognition and selection of the best image to send to the Earth, and chatbot function in which the components of the RSP-01 automatically reply to messages gathered from the ground via Twitter. The nickname "Selfie-sh" is derived from "Selfie" and “Selfish” with the passion of the development team members who never give up what they want.

The following developing teams are involved.
Automatically selects the best images from among the photos taken and delivers them to the ground.
In-house production of radio equipment solves the problems of cost and helps space saving.
The magnetic torquers and the reaction wheel, which is rare in CubeSat, are mounted, and the technology of the control of the angular velocity of one axis is demonstrated.
RSP-01 will chat with you in which the RSP-01 automatically replies to messages gathered from the ground via Twitter.
RSP-01 is the world’s first “designed” satellite. What does it mean to have design on a tech-bundled satellite? Yes, the RSP-01's mission is to take selfies, which means it must have a cool and attractive appearance to be a subject! We also make the satellite look as if it is taking a selfie with its arm outstretched with a smartphone, and we used our image color, Blue, in various places to convey the identity of the satellite. From the details of the mechanism to the overall color scheme, the engineers and designers worked together to create the RSP-01, and we believe that with this machine, we have taken a step forward toward the cool science fiction world that we have dreamed of.
Optimized and packed all the necessary mounting devices, components, and wiring paths in 1U Chassis.
