Pt. 1 Research
Funded through the Canadian Space Agency’s Canadian CubeSat Project, the Northern SPIRIT consortium is dedicated to the design, build, test and launch of 3 CubeSat Satellites. Their study will focus on Canadian forest fires and forwarding Canadian Indigenous Northern Arts, Voices, and History. The consortium consists of 3 institutions: The University of Alberta (UofA), AlbertaSat; Yukon University (YU); and Aurora College (AC).
Currently I am a project manager for the AlbertaSat, the undergraduate group responsible for designing and manufacturing all 3 satellite structures, the Forest Fire Imager: Iris, and the Digital Fluxgate Magnetometer (DFGM). The group consists of over 80 members ranging from undergrad to masters and includes disciplines such as engineering, science, education, business, and Arts/Design.
