BRICSAT2 and PSAT2 Designated Navy-OSCAR 103 (NO-103) and Navy-
OSCAR 104 (NO-104)

On June 25, 2019, the United States Naval Academy PSAT2 and BRICSAT2
cubesats were launched on a Falcon Heavy launch vehicle from the
Kennedy Space Center in Florida. PSAT2 and BRICSAT2 were developed by
Naval Academy students in the USNA Satellite Lab and operated in
cooperation with the USNA Amateur Radio Club. PSAT2 carries a PSK31
transponder, digipeater, SSTV-downlinked camera images, and a DTMF to
voice/APRS system. BRICSAT2 carries a digipeater and thruster
experiment. Both satellites are currently active.

At the request of the Naval Academy Amateur Radio Club, AMSAT hereby
designates BRICSAT2 as Navy-OSCAR 103 (NO-103), and PSAT2 as Navy-
OSCAR 104 (NO-104). We congratulate the owners and operators, thank
them for their contribution to the amateur satellite community, and
wish them a long mission and continued success on this and future
