ABSTRACT

There has been a lot of excitement and work concerning CubeSats in recent years as these systems have become more and more popular among the engineering and scientific communities. Many people have heard of these new satellites but may not be aware of exactly what a CubeSat is and what can be used for. In this seminar, an introduction to CubeSats will be presented, addressing the questions of what they are and what they are used for, including several example CubeSat projects that have flown or are currently being developed for the Artemis I mission to launch in 2021.
