NEUDOSE satellite project passes CSA milestoneJanuary 23, 2019

Students and faculty who have designed and built a satellite to be launched into deep space have reached a major milestone.

A team of nearly 70 undergrad and graduate students from nearly every faculty on campus, including 53 students from the Faculty of Engineering, have reached a major milestone this week.

The team has designed and built a satellite, roughly the size of a loaf of bread, that was chosen by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) in May of last year as one of 15 proposals from across the country to participate in the Canadian CubeSat Project.

It is designed to measure the nature and properties of potentially dangerous radiation astronauts are exposed to during spacewalks and is expected to be deployed from the International Space Station (ISS) in late 2021 or early 2022.

But before any of that takes place, members of the team had to first meet with CSA delegates to present and update their mission concept, the culmination of six months of work.
