The TJREVERB team built a 2U CubeSat that evaluates the signal connectivity of the Iridium Radio alongside the ISS' orbit. Additionally, TJREVERB served as an educational vehicle for teaching students the principles of systems engineering.

TJ REVERB underwent its vibration testing on May 24, 2022. Here, REVERB was taken to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, and subjected to the same types of vibration it would later experience during launch, and the satellite was inspected to ensure no parts came loose. REVERB passed the test.
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).
The team integrated TJREVERB at Nanoracks LLC, making it officially ready to go to space
TJ Space was awarded the Innovative STEM Student Program of the Year by NCSSS and Best Presentation at the Young Professionals Student and Educators Conference
TJREVERB is officially launching on the SpaceX CRS-26 mission, marking the end for this incredible project
