Space Micro Awards to CubeSat Space Processor (CSP) Competition Winners

San Diego, CA – August 17, 2018

Space Micro Inc. sponsored its inaugural student competition at the 32nd Small Satellite Conference in Logan, Utah in August 2018. Student teams competed for recognition and the winners received CubeSat Space Processor (CSP) Engineering Model (EM) kits donated by Space Micro. The annual competition was open to students from any academic institution to submit designs for the most innovative application of Space Micro’s CSP on a new space mission.

The two winning teams which were announced and awarded on August 7 at the Small Satellite Conference are:

  • 1. Embrey Riddle-“EagleSat-2”- Radiation Effects in Microelectronics, Hilliard W Paige III
  • 2. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)- Optical communications, Bobby Glenn Holden and Kerri Cahoy

Dr. Bert Vermeire and Ms. Katherine Conway represented Space Micro in the awards ceremony.

The CSP is a high performance, radiation-hardened, and reliable, single board computer in a CubeSat form factor. It is in full production at Space Micro with design-ins and deliveries to over 20 space programs, and has existing space-flight heritage. With these donations, Space Micro now had delivered over 35 CSPs to government agencies, industrial companies, and Universities for both emerging and current flight programs.

“Universities are leading the CubeSat revolution and are also generating a fantastic pipeline of qualified and motivated engineers for the growing space industry,” said Space Micro CEO, David J. Strobel.
