Abstract
Macho Mengi (means ?Many Eyes? in Swahili) will be an interferometric observatory system that uses the combined assets of free-flying nanosatellite formations and earth-based observatories to image stars, exoplanets and also track near earth asteroids. We envision Macho Mengi extending beyond Earth around our solar system and with ground-units stationed on other planets and moons. It is being developed by the NSBE Houston Space Chapter in partnership with Texas A&M University, Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, Seal of Valor (501c3), and C3, Inc. We are currently in phase 2 of development which is to construct an interferometric telescope test bed built for the purpose of educating young engineers and promoting STEM career fields for students. The test bed will facilitate ongoing research and development to develop the systems in the nanosatellite telescopes (NSBESAT-2) in addition to extending the network of earth-based observatories (serving schools and college campuses).
