19th anniversary of ARISS operations
On November 13, 2000, the ARISS amateur radio payload was turned on and the first operations occurred over Russia and the United States.
Our ARISS team is working feverishly on the final certification of our next generation radio system: the Interoperable Radio System.
We thank all those that have supported this development effort through team support as well as donations!! We continue to move closer to a planned March 2020 launch of the hardware on SpaceX CRS-20.
