TechEdSat 7 [NASA]
TechEdSat 7 (Technical and Educational Satellite 7) is a 2U 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 that will further develop the Exo-Brake system by testing a High Packing Density ExoBrake, as well as demonstrate a CubeSat Identity Tag (CUBIT), a DARPA RF-ID system for future identification of functioning and non-functioning nanosatellites.
It was selected in 2017 by NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) to be launched as part of the ELaNa program. It will be launched on the ELaNa-20 mission on a dedicated LauncherOne.
