We build and deploy microsatellites. But, we’re not a space company – not exactly. We’re a data company. Our micro-satellites gather valuable and timely data on the only home we’ve ever known in order to prepare for, prevent, and mitigate climate-related effects on our water resources, forests, crops, and air quality.


Following the PocketQube standard, our 3p satellite bus is a lightweight platform that can carry a small array of sensors suited for a single experiment, which makes it a great option for colleges or universities looking to build their first low-cost satellite. Challenger is capable of Earth observation, remote sensing, and multi-spectral data collection from Low Earth Orbit (LEO).

Quub’s custom expansion on the PocketQube standard, our 6p satellite bus offers about the same volume as a 1.5U Cubesat, but in a form that allows greater flexibility for non-standard circuit board design. Using Quub’s custom microcontroller boards, Aurora can support a load of up to 7 different sensor types, with up to 26 watts of onboard power. Our standard electro-optical (EO) package starts with a multispectral (Near-IR to UV) telescope with between 5 and 10 meters per pixel resolution to support remote sensing and anomaly detection. This design also supports a vacuum arc thruster for propulsion, which allows the satellite to adjust course, or to automatically deorbit in the event of system failure.

Employing an electronically triggered constant-force spring system, Quub’s Hyperion deployers will propel their cargo from the launch vehicle at about 1 meters per second. This standard deployer can hold PocketQube satellites in configurations including: one 6p unit, two 3p units, and multiple arrangements of 1p and/or 2p units.

Our tried-and-true 3U Cubesat bus offers significant flexibility, and is compatible with most standard Cubesat circuit boards and deployers. Supporting a power budget of 16 to 30 watts, Miranda works well as a more advanced educational platform capable of carrying multiple student experiments. Compatible with our vacuum arc thruster.
