Mission Statement

We are a recently established high school team dedicated to applying our STEM knowledge to accurately mapping the ionosphere with a 3U CubeSat. Our satellite will measure charge density and high energy particle emissions in the ionosphere, contributing to radio propagation models and space weather research.
 
 
What is a CubeSat?  
 
CubeSats  are small, low mass satellites usually deployed from launch vehicles carrying bigger primary payloads. We are developing a 10x10x30 cm (3U) CubeSat. We are applying to be launched through CubeSat Launch Initiative 2018 , a NASA program dedicated to providing a pathway for student groups like us to launch CubeSats.
 
 
Why We Need You 
 
CubeSats are expensive. We’re working with NASA, JHU Applied Physics Laboratory, and the Naval Research Laboratory to get parts, testing equipment, and manufacturing facilities, but we don’t have any guaranteed cash in hand yet. Any parts that are not covered by these organizations will cost tens of thousands of dollars and we need cash to support in-house testing and prototyping. Thus, we need every dollar of your support to get blair3sat to space.
