    GreenCube Designated Italy-OSCAR 117 (IO-117)

    On July 13, 2022, the GreenCube satellite was launched on a Vega-C launch vehicle from the Centre Spatial Guyanais in Kourou, French Guiana. The satellite project is managed by the S5Lab research team at Sapienza
    University of Rome, and involves ENEA (the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development) and University
    of Naples. The satellite carries environmental and thruster payloads and as well as a 70cm digipeater for amateur radio use.

    At the request of the GreenCube teams, AMSAT hereby designates the
    satellite as Italy-OSCAR 117 (IO-117). We congratulate all the involved
    teams, thank them for their contribution to the amateur satellite
    community, and wish them continued success on this and future projects.
