Maya-3 & Maya-4

Maya-3 and Maya-4 are the first Philippine-university built CubeSats developed under the STAMINA4Space Program. The project aims to gain and locally extend the knowledge and skills on satellite development acquired from foreign schooling and utilize the domestic capabilities for satellite development. The two share the same bus but differ in some payloads: Maya-3 has two 5MP visual camera that will take photos and/or videos of the country, while Maya-4 has a combination of a 5MP visual camera and a near-infrared camera.
