Reverse Engineering Videos

Reverse engineering allows us to learn more about a certain technology or machine by disassembling it, learning how it works, and using that new knowledge to create a new version of that technology or machine. Wolfpack, a Floridian team with whom f(x) First in Orbit is collaborating with, generously allowed f(x) to use their CubeSat prototype for the purpose of learning how it functions. Thanks to Wolfpack, f(x) First in Orbit has been able to learn how a CubeSat functions through the proccess of reverse engineering. Below are videos of f(x) First in Orbit students reverse engineering Wolfpack's CubeSat prototype. The introductory video gives an overview of the process and a description of the remaining videos.
