LituanicaSAT-1 – The first ever Lithuanian satellite of 1U standard CubeSat size that was successfully developed and delivered to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for it's launch in 2014. It was launched from the International Space Station into low-earth orbit where it gathered data and conduct several pre-planned experiments. The project helped to develop infrastructure and know-how for aerospace technology by interdisciplinary interaction between academia and industry in Lithuania. My personal contribution to this project was mainly software-based and consisted of integrating a Global Navigation System (GPS/GLONASS) receiver (MNP-M7).
