PLEX partnered with CrypticVector during the HackASat2 Qualifiers in June 2021, a 30-hour event involving complex space physics, satellite communications challenges, reverse engineering, and hacking.  The team, SingleEventUpset, secured 6th place out of over 1,000 teams worldwide, which now qualifies them for the Finals Competition in December 2021.  The Finals will involve a complex Attack/Defend hacking scenario where teams will need to protect their Ground Control Stations and Satellites while attacking other team’s systems.
