LetSat CubeSat

LetSat is a team of dedicated engineering students whose primary goal is to advance satellite design and technology. The team is working to design, build, and operate a CubeSat, known as LetSat-1, that will recognize its planetary orbit position and demonstrate artificial intelligence hardware in low earth orbit.

The LetSat team consists of 16 of the most capable undergraduate engineering students at LeTourneau University. We are mechanical, electrical, and computer engineers, working in the aerospace, mechanical, thermal, electrical, computing, and radio communications engineering fields.

Faculty Advisor Byron Lichtenberg is a retired space shuttle astronaut. In addition to teaching at LeTourneau and working with LetSat, he serves in advisory capacities with NASA and several private aerospace companies. 

At this stage of the project, donated funds will be used to build flight hardware components and cover testing and certification costs for the satellite.

By May of 2018, we plan to have a complete payload assembled, tested, and certified for spaceflight.
