The Philippine Space Agency (PhilSA), in collaboration with the Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute (EEEI) of the University of the Philippines Diliman (@officialupdiliman) and four Philippine universities, successfully completed the Preliminary Design Review (PDR) of the Maya-7 satellite project on 29 June 2023.
Maya-7 is a 2U CubeSat (two-unit cube satellite) being developed through the PhilSA ACCESS Nanosat, or the Advancing Core Competencies and Expertise in Space Studies Nanosat Project. ACCESS Nanosat provides the opportunity for Filipinos to pursue a master’s degree with specialized courses in satellite engineering at the UPD EEEI. The ACCESS Nanosat Team, consisting of students and researchers, are developing the Maya-7 CubeSat.
To foster synergy, maximize learning opportunities, and contribute to the democratization of space, PhilSA also invited the winning 2022 Nanosat Mission Idea Contest (NMIC) Teams from Cebu Technological University (@ctu.premier), De La Salle University (@dlsu), Mindanao State University – Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT) and University of the Philippines Los Baños (@uplbofficial) to collaborate with the ACCESS Nanosat Team in the project.
