This round was opened in March 2019 and closed at the end of September 2019. SICA, the Central American Integration System has been selected as the awardee. SICA's CubeSat "Morazan-Sat" is currently under development,  seeks to be a proof of concept for the development of a UHF/VHF communication platform. It will prove the capability of monitoring weather variables on-site using UHF/VHF radio packets, and once the mission is finished, with the help of radio amateurs, the capabilities for UHF/VHF emergency communications using Automatic Package Reporting System (APRS) will be tested.

This round was opened in October 2018 and closed at the end of January 2019. The Technical University of Moldova has been selected as the awardee. Their CubeSat "TUMnanoSAT" is currently under development, intended to check under real conditions the functionality of various modules and subsystems of the satellite. Their technology demonstrations include studying the behaviour of sensors based on nano- and micro-wires, sensors for determining the satellite attitude, establishing communications systems, testing solar power supply systems and endurance of electronic components.
