Mission Statement

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.

Timeline
  • Q4 2016

    Team Created

    TJREVERB was started by students at TJ.

  • 2017

    Plan mission and design CubeSat

    TJREVERB's original mission was planned out. 3D modelling started alongside electronic part design.

  • Q1+2 2018

    Part Ordering

    The TJREVERB team ordered relevant off the shelf electronic components individually.

  • Q3 2018 - Q1 2020

    Flatsat and Preliminary Testing

    Temporary flatsat was assembled and software testing began.

  • Q2 2020 - Q4 2020

    Work Paused by Pandemic

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, work on TJREVERB was paused.

  • Q1 2021 - Q2 2021

    Nikhil Strikes Back

    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.

  • Q2 2021 - Q1 2022

    Post Pandemic

    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.
