Composite Technology Development, inc (CTD) was awarded a contract supporting the Colorado Center for Astrodynamics
Research (CCAR) at the University of Colorado Boulder’s grant from the National Science Foundation to deliver a CubeSat that maps the energy of lightning in space. As part of this effort, CTD will deliver a boom deployer system for the CANVAS (Climatology of Anthropocentric and Natural VLF wave Activity in Space) CubeSat mission lead by Dr. Robert A. Marshall (Ann and H.J. SMead Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences at the University of Colorado Boulder) and his team.
