NASA-Sponsored Student Team Develops Innovative Small Satellite Antenna Designs

Nicole Neveu, leader of the NASA-sponsored senior design team, presents their small satellite antenna design to their faculty advisors and sponsors.

Robert Provence, a NASA aerospace engineer, had a problem.

For over 12 years, Provence has been designing and developing small satellites called “CubeSats” for NASA. In this time, Provence has seen the design of CubeSats improve drastically – with one exception: the antennas for CubeSats have remained more or less the same since the beginning, and these antennas are, as Provence says, a problem.
