a small satellite


The EdgeCube project

is a partnership between Sonoma State University, Santa Clara University in California, and Morehead State University in Kentucky, with additional support from the California Space Grant Consortium (CaSGC).



The students will design, construct, test, and operate the CubeSat.


Ground operations will be conducted using existing facilities at Sonoma State University, Santa Clara University, and Morehead State University.


Our Mission:

  • To see Ecosystem change overtime.
  • A global measurement of the red edge that monitors a sharp change in leaf reflectance in the range 680 to 750 nm from changes in vegetation chlorophyll absorption and mesophyll scattering due to seasonal leaf phenology or stress.
  • Train and educate future STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) leaders.
