About Us

We are an undergraduate CubeSat design team consisted of Virginia Tech students with diverse backgrounds and majors:

 

  • College of Engineering: Aerospace, Mechanical, Computer Science, Electrical, Industrial, and Materials Science

 

  • Pamplin College of Business: Business Information Technology, Finance & Business Law, and Marketing & Management

 

In 2018, we participated along with other university teams in the SEDS SAT-II competition. In late 2019, we found out we won the competition and won a free launch of our product through Nanoracks. Our projected launch date is in Q3 of 2021.

 

Our team combines both technical and non-technical aspects to achieve our goals. The technical side consists of four subteams responsible for developing our product, ContentCube. While the non-technical side consists of three subteams responsible for the business aspects including financing, fundraising, and marketing for inspireFly and ContentCube.
