What we're about

Dallas Makerspace is an organized group of local artists, engineers, DIYers, makers, and thinkers who work together to collect tools and resources for our membership, who could not otherwise afford, store, or use them individually.

We lease an industrial building and use it as a shared workspace to collaborate on a variety of individual and community projects that promote science and technology.

If you are a "maker", then Dallas Makerspace is the best place in Dallas to find like minded people who share your interests. You might find Dallas Makers working and experimenting on innovative ideas which may very well lead to the next world-changing technological revolution or spark the beginning of a billion dollar business plan!

Tech Talk: CEO of Kubos Satellite Startup

Dallas Makerspace

Marshall Culpepper will present about his micro Satellite software startup KUBOS https://www.kubos.com/ " A Denton startup’s technology soon will be out of this world, literally. Kubos, a software platform that is targeting the emerging commercial space industry, is getting ready to launch its CubeSats satellites and software platform into outer space with help from Webster, Texas-based NanoRacks. Its founders, CEO Marshall Culpepper, COO Tyler Browder and Chief Scientist Jesse Hamner, are hoping the company will provide other businesses and developers opportunities to reach new markets. “We’re working with companies that a year ago couldn’t imagine this,” Culpepper said, adding that the startup makes custom small satellites for its clients. “They didn’t realize how accessible it (space) has become.” Here’s a look at Kubos, founded last year, and what it's planning for the future. What inspired you to found this company? I’m a software engineer. I got exposed to a space startup trying to bring education and hackers into this space. They had ambitions but no software people. They liked me and hired me. For about a year, my team and I were able to put three satellites at International Space Station in lower orbit and run experiments. Since then, I’ve been trying to figure out my own unique vision and how we could improve access to space. I met Tyler and Jesse through things we were doing through TechMill Denton. Our vision is to make space more accessible to developers and companies that are not in space. How does Kubos work? One of the biggest things these satellites provide is access to an audience you don’t have access to. They transmit content through handy talkie radios or infrastructure cheaper to deploy than hardwire infrastructure. So you can reach them in a new way that wasn’t possible before. You could broadcast that content globally and have access to more people. Some of the companies we are talking to right now want a custom sensor network. There are a lot of companies doing things like satellite imagery.
