The picture below shows the top covering plate of the satellite. It attaches to the UHF/VHF telemetry and telecommand antenna from ISIS and also covers the HF antenna and deployment mechanism. It is the only facet of the satellite not covered by a solar panel.
The top plate of the satellite was engraved with a message from the CEO of the South African National Space Agency (SANSA), Dr Sandile Malinga. It also carries some the names of the staff that contributed to the project and the building of the satellite.
