Team Miles, a collection of citizen inventors, is engaged in the Cube Quest Challenge. Our goal is to develop a small satellite that will orbit the moon and then journey to a deep space asteroid. Our mission goals are to demonstrate the ability to conduct orbital maneuvers, navigate to a target given limited information, and demonstrate robust communications with a ground station from both lunar orbit and deep space. We will be refining and implementing several new technologies including plasma thrusters, a failsafe computing cluster, and a revolutionary communications strategy.
As part of accomplishing these goals, we plan to compete for a number of prizes offered in the Cube Quest Challenge. By leveraging our competitive advantages, we believe we are uniquely qualified to perform exceptionally in achieving lunar orbit, establishing lunar orbit to ground station communications and establishing ourselves in deep space for the distance prize.
Congratulations to two of our volunteers that have been promoted to full team member status: Jan McKenna and Heather Bradford.read more
