Cube Quest Challenge Communications

Alpha Cube Sat Team Organization

  • XISP-Inc is the founding sponsor for the team
  • Matrix organization with designated leads, advisors/task managers, as well as talent pool
  • Team Alpha CubeSat uses the following definitions for Team Member, Team Advisor, and International Liaisons which are believed to be consistent with the Cube Quest Challenge Rules and the specific requirements of Team Alpha Cubesat.
  • If a change is deemed required by the Cube Quest Challenge administrative team adjustments to maintain compliance will be made.

Team Members

Registered Team Members have asserted that they are willing to help Team Alpha Cubesat, agree to fill out the required paperwork, play by the Cube Quest Challenge and Team Alpha Cubesat rules, and be available for such Team assignments/work product commitments as their respective schedules permit.
