CubeStep is my most recent project at CPP and one that I'm extremely excited to be a part of. The project is in collaboration with NASA JPL.

The project is protected by an NDA so unfortunately, I can't share the good details.

Challenges faced

Cube satellites have so much potential to be an amazing satellite platform, but with great potential comes great challenges (I think that's how the saying goes). Most of the challenges associated with this project is providing data and proof that our satellite can provide what the customer needs. After all, what good is a satellite if it can't deliver what the payload needs.
