Space Forge is set to launch their in-orbit manufacturing demonstration satellite, ForgeStar-1, equipped with Silicon Sensing’s CAS291 accelerometer.

The high-performance accelerometer will be installed in the electrical subsystem of the avionics bay on the satellite, where it will measure the level of microgravity inside the satellite, linking it to the quality of space-produced materials.

These are the first satellites designed and built in Wales, United Kingdom.
