Flight evaluation of a NASA JPL image processing FPGA called COVE.

Description

Flight evaluation of a NASA JPL image processing FPGA called COVE. Our spacecraft provides pictures of Earth for processing, power, and data handling. M-Cubed2 is a re-flight of the COVE experiment with updated avionics after the original M-Cubed accidentally docked with another cubesat shortly after launch, losing the ability to transmit in the process.
