With the aid of Massey university, KiwiSAT Team Leader Mr Fred Kennedy attended the Asian Space Conference in Singapore 21-23 March in 2007. Fred made a keynote presentation to the Conference on the design and development of KiwiSAT with an update on progress to date.
Fred spoke of the difficulties encountered the project being overcome by traditional "Kiwi" ingenuity and the "can-do" approach to otherwise insoluble problems.
"The Nation that spawned Dr William Pickering, whose leadership took America's space effort to the moon and beyond, can surely produce a microsat by itself!"Fred Kennedy
