Through the STAMINA4SPACE program funded by the Department of Science and Technology, Lieutenant Marielle M Gregorio PN, Research Chief of the Naval Research and Technology Development Center, participated in the momentous development of the Maya 3 and Maya 4 cube satellites led by the University of the Philippines Diliman Electrical and Electronics Engineering Institute (UPD-EEEI).

Another Philippine Navy officer, Ltjg Christy A Raterta PN, and six (6) other engineers participated in the development of the country’s locally-built cube satellites.

The STAMINA4Space Program aimed to develop and build cube satellites that would demonstrate nanosatellite-based remote data collection systems and optical imaging, and would benefit the country’s agriculture, environment, disaster risk management, and defense sectors, to name a few.

As part of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) SpaceX Commercial Resupply Mission-23, Maya 3 and Maya 4 were flown to the International Space Station yesterday.
