A Team from UdeS Selected to Develop a Miniature Satellite  

The team QMSat, comprised of future engineers from the Université de Sherbrooke, obtained one of the 15 grants of more than $200 000 awarded by the Canadian Space Agency within the framework of the CubeSats project.

Hence, over 150 UdeS students in electrical engineering, computer engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, and aerospace engineering technology will take part in designing, building, and operating a miniature satellite the size of a quart of milk.

The satellite will be launched into space by 2021 from the International Space Station, equipped with a quantum magnetometer developed at the UdeS’ Institut Quantique. The magnetometer will measure the magnetic fields in space to help study the impacts of solar storms on radio communications, GPS, and electricity networks.
