A Ka-band transponder system has been designed for the microsatellite FedSat-1. The transponder will allow propagation and communication experiments over the three year lifetime of the satellite, supporting the further development of space systems and the modeling of lifetime performance of the Ka-band monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) components. The transponder will provide a means of testing the benefits of small, low power and low cost satellites.
