The TJREVERB project is building a 2U CubeSat that evaluates the signal connectivity of the Iridium Radio alongside the ISS' orbit. Additionally, TJREVERB serves as an educational vehicle for teaching students the principles of systems engineering. Beyond the rich learning experience of designing and constructing a satellite which TJREVERB provides to students at TJHSST, the program is committed to a robust local, national, and international outreach program. As part of this outreach program, we are creating a best practices document for amateur teams hoping to build a satellite, and allowing outreach partners to connect to our satellite and sent and recieve basic commands via Iridium.

TJREVERB was started by students at TJ.
TJREVERB's original mission was planned out. 3D modelling started alongside electronic part design.
The TJREVERB team ordered relevant off the shelf electronic components individually.
Temporary flatsat was assembled and software testing began.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, work on TJREVERB was paused.
As TJREVERB was rebuilding after the long hiatus caused by the pandemic, our project manager Nikhil Kalidasu brought radical changes and pushed the project forward.
After the pandemic, the TJREVERB team worked hard to overcome knowledge gap. The team rebuilt the software from scratch, redesigned elecronic components, changed the mission's goal, and began meeting NASA's deadlines.
The team went to the US Naval Academy in Annapolis to complete the required vibration test, with the help of Dr. Jin Kang (pictured).
TJREVERB will offically launch in October 2022, marking the end for this incredible project
We are grateful for our fantastic partners and the mentors they have given us
