Ask any professor: A good idea alone isn’t likely to receive serious research funding. Big awards almost always have some data that supports the project, that shows the researcher’s idea should work.

In a classic catch-22, though, getting this data itself takes money. Materials for experiments, graduate student time, lab space, computing power – none of these are free.

Nicole Neveu, leader of the NASA-sponsored senior design team, presents their small satellite antenna design to their faculty advisors and sponsors.

Robert Provence, a NASA aerospace engineer, had a problem.

For over 12 years, Provence has been designing and developing small satellites called “CubeSats” for NASA. In this time, Provence has seen the design of CubeSats improve drastically – with one exception: the antennas for CubeSats have remained more or less the same since the beginning, and these antennas are, as Provence says, a problem.

ECE associate professor Len Trombetta has been musical since childhood. He started playing the saxophone in 8th grade, and the clarinet four years before that. He was part of a big band group in high school, and in college studying physics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. During graduate work at Lehigh University, he directed a student-run band for a couple of years. In New Jersey he briefly played with a rehearsal band. Then he arrived in Houston.
