Objectives and Applications MCubed-2/COVE is a 1U CubeSat developed by the UM (University of Michgan) at Ann Arbor, MI and NASA/JPL as a reflight system of the MCubed/COVE (CubeSat On-board processing Validation Experiment) mission that experienced an anomaly leading to the post-deployment magnetic conjunction of two CubeSats. The mission goals of MCubed-2/COVE remains the same, to take mid-resolution images of the Earth at approximately 200 m per pixel while carrying the COVE payload. The project is sponsored by NASA's ESTO (Earth Science Technology Office). Paula J. Pingree of JPL is the PI and James W. Cutler of UM is the Co-PI of the COVE mission.
