The idea for the Liège CubeSat was born on Tuesday 18 September 2007 during a telephone conversation between Luc Halbach, an amateur-radio operator and engineer at Spacebel, and Professor Jacques G. Verly of the Faculty of Applied Sciences (School of Engineering) of the University of Liège (Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science or “Institut Montefiore” – Laboratory for Signal and Image Exploitation), also a ham-radio operator. They were soon joined by Professor Gaëtan Kerschen (Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering). At that time, ham-radio operators were beginning to use a sophisticated technology for digital telecommunications known as D-STAR, but the worldwide D-STAR system did not yet have a relay satellite, a very useful device when there are no terrestrial relays or they have been destroyed, e.g. during natural catastrophes. Providing such a relay is one of the missions of OUFTI-1!
