At the AMSAT-ZL Annual General Meeting held at the NZART Conference 2023, the group unanimously voted to dissolve the organization.
The KiwiSAT project started in 1999, and was practially completed in 2010. Lack of suitable launches and funds for the final integration were unavailable, and the project stalled.
There is hope that KiwiSAT can find a home at the Space Museum at Te Awamutu or possibly one of the universities that contributed to its design and construction.
Documentation is published in the hope that this open source work will benefit future satellite efforts.
The remaining funds in the AMSAT-ZL treasury will be donated to the NZART Radio Science Trust.
