Hi, Derek here with a few addenda to the video here.

I want to clarify that everything said here was my opinion and not necessarily representative of the University of Michigan or even MiTEE as an organization.


The CubeSat was not at all completely designed by students on an electrical level. I misspoke and didn’t realize that mistake until after editing. We received major help from the Space Physics Research Laboratory (SPRL) on campus here by adopting some of their electronics from a previous CubeSat mission they ran. Overall about 50% of the electrical design work though was completely lead by the students here.


Check out our twitter page at https://twitter.com/miteecubesat?lang=en to stay up to date with the latest mission activities regarding our launch!
Finally, I want to give a huge shoutout to SPRL and Prof. Brian Gilchirst for all of their help in making this project possible for the countless number of students that have been involved. Without their knowledge and material resources, we would never have been able to get to a point where we are awaiting a final launch date to get into space.

Well, one more I guess. I’m a rising junior in electrical engineering and I’m actively looking for an internship for the summer of 2020. So if you enjoyed my semi-educational talk about students in the CubeSat world and didn’t catch my numerous mistakes regarding design and testing paradigms. If you might know of somewhere I should apply or want to contact me for further questions here’s my LinkedIn
