Of the 101 Dutch satellites, the company was at three, which is partly responsible for the design and development. It is unclear what role ISISpace exactly played with the other 98 devices. A spokesman of the ruimteorganisatie was not reachable for comment.

The company helped for a Swiss project with the DIDO-2. This satellite is a minilaboratorium for in the space, which tested how well such a system can work.

In the Netherlands, partly made Nayif-1 will text messages from the earth, capture and forwarding. In this way, the satellite data for academic research send between the Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre, and academics in the United Arab Emirates.

The PEASSS can be self power generating and to keep the space in the holes. In this way, the nanosatelliet make it easier for Europe to scans of the space to perform.
