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.
Our tiny spaceship gets a NASA ride past the moon and journeys almost to Mars! Team Miles brings home another top finish in the NASA #CubeQuest Ground Tournament! Thanks to all the competitors for keeping us on our game and a big congrats to CisLunar Explorers,...read more
