TechEdSat 6 (Technical and Educational Satellite 6) is a 3U CubeSat. It was built as a conjoined project between San Jose State University (SJSU) and the University of Idaho as a collaborative engineering project, with oversight from the NASA Ames Research Center.
It is a technology demonstration mission to demonstrate an Exo-Brake system to provide a targeted nanosatellite de-orbit using fully propellant-less techniques.
It was selected in 2017 by NASA to be launched as part of the ELaNa program.
