RSP-01 is Ryman Sat Project's second satellite. It is a 1U CubeSat weighing around 1.3 kg, and is equipped with an arm that can extend up to 10 cm. The CubeSat has three transceivers. The on board computer uses Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
The project began in 2017, and development was completed by 2020. Part of the development cost was covered by a crowdfunding campaign in 2019. The RSP-01 project is led by Ryuichi Mitsui and Shuichi Ito.
RSP-01's main mission is to extend an arm carrying a camera, and photograph RSP-01 with the Earth in the background, taking selfies. The arm has a pantograph design to allow contraction after being extended.
