Dr. Alan Johnston, associate teaching professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is the faculty advisor for the new Villanova student organization known as CubeSat Club. A CubeSat is a nanosatellite that sends telemetry information—measurements communicated at remote points by automated processes—over radio signals received on earth by a ground station. They can help students learn about orbital mechanics, conditions in space and energy production via solar cells.
