PI Engineering (PIE) is a group of engineers based in College Station, TX. Sponsored by NASA's Command and Data Handling Branch, they are creating a new layer for the MISL stack that will communicate with legacy MIL-STD 1553 equipment on the International Space Station (ISS). This layer allows for an updated interface to otherwise outmoded devices. Dr. Gang Sun is the teams technical advisor and will be helping them in the process of creating this new layer for the MISL stack. Mr. Timothy Sweet is the teams liaison from NASA.


SafeNet is an Aggie owned start up company based out of College Station, Texas. SafeNet will design, develop and test a motion and noise detecting safety device to be used in a hospice care facility. The device will be attached to the user's body and will send an event message to the hospice nurse and family member when an event is triggered. The device will serve the purpose of being an event notifier without any user intervention.


Trio Tech is an Aggie owned and operated engineering start up company based out of College Station, Texas. The Trio Technologies is currently working with our sponsor, Dr. Joseph Morgan, to design a glove capable of detecting hand gestures and movements, and wirelessly transmitting those signals to the Disaster robot, controlling the Disaster robots movements based on those hand gestures and movements.

For Teams Fall of 2015 - Spring 2016


Avalon Marine Systems is a small start-up company based in College Station, Texas, consisting of four engineers specializing in wireless communication systems. We will be sponsored by Bass Pro Shops, working with them to develop a bass fishing boat user interface that seeks to add convenience to one's bass fishing experience. This project will wirelessly integrate a boat's main motor, trolling motor, fish finder, GPS, sonar, and lights into a single touch-screen user interface. Avalon Marine Systems will be joined by Dr. Rainer Fink, Ph. D. as the faculty advisor on this project

DVDT 9.4.png

DVDT is an Aggie owned and operated engineering consulting firm based out of College Station, Texas. We are pleased to be working with Texas Space, Technology, Applications, & Research (T STAR) who is sponsoring a CubeSat communications project. DVDT will design, develop, and deliver a prototype system that is capable of communicating between a TSat, CubeSat class vehicle designed by T STAR, and a base station. This development will be incorporated into the existing MISL Stack system through the generation of a new MISL layer to aid in the development of a turnkey TSat architecture. DVDT is excited to be working with Professor Mike Willey as our senior advisor throughout the project.

DeLectronics Logo T.png

DeLectronics is a small start up company that is currently working with Texas Green Energy through Adam Burke who is also their faculty adviser. Their project's main application is corrosion protection for oil pipelines. They will be designing a device, with an associated network interface, that can interface with existing cathodic protection systems on oil pipelines to transmit and save data and allow oil companies to have the ability to control the power supply that powers the existing system. This solution can save oil companies both money and labor hours and increase day-to-day efficiency.

Floating Hybrid Solutions is delighted to work with Dr. Rainer Fink and Bass Pro Shops for the creation of "h-drive", a hybrid kayak. Normal kayaks are man powered, but h-drive would have an electric engine mounted in it. h-drive would be able to work in shallow water so the motor will not drag on the bottom. Solar panels are going to be mounted on h-drive to help recharge the batteries as well as foot pedals to charge the batteries when the batteries are low. h-drive would also have the ability to control the electric motor wirelessly from a joystick or another wireless communication device.


Konetek Engineering is a small startup company based in College Station, Texas focused on the development of electronic systems. We are currently working with a London based company called Fanmode LLC in order to develop a real time participation system for sports fans. The device will have the ability to recognize and convey the emotions expressed in physical movement by fans watching various sporting events. Data will be collected and processed by the device, then transmitted to a smartphone via wireless connectivity, stored in the cloud, and finally displayed on Fanmode’s platform. The advisor of this project is Dr. Ben Zoghi of Texas A&M University.
