Three MQPs representing seven subsystems collaborated on the construction of a ground-based CubeSat to test current technologies and investigate the feasibility of future CubeSat projects at WPI. This report outlines efforts of the power, propulsion, and structure subsystem teams, each of which were able to design and begin assembly of a baseline version of their subsystem to be used for future testing. The results of these design efforts, as well as the extensive research and recommendations, will be used by future groups to prepare a flight-ready satellite. In addition, this project included the preliminary design of power, propulsion, and structure subsystems for a 3U CubeSat to carry an Infrared Spectrometer payload.
