LONGUEUIL, QC, Nov. 25, 2022 /CNW/ - During the week of November 28, seven Canadian CubeSat Project (CCP) teams are expected at the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to complete the final steps in preparation of their CubeSats for launch. This important milestone confirms that their miniature satellites are qualified to be launched into space and deployed from the International Space Station (ISS).

Under the CCP, 15 teams of students from post-secondary institutions in each province and territory designed and built their own CubeSat with the guidance of CSA experts and representatives from the Canadian space industry. The first two CubeSats, LORIS (Dalhousie University) and ORCASat (University of Victoria) are set to launch to the ISS on Saturday, November 26, 2022.
