JOE LATRELL – Chief Executive Officer
Joe Latrell is an inventor and technology developer who has coordinated payloads for launch on the SpaceX Falcon 9, Blue Origin New Shepard, and Rocket Lab Electron.
Prior to quub, Joe gained wide-ranging experience in a variety of technology roles, such as launching an early-stage suborbital rocket company, coding programs for large datasets, and developing numerous software packages for the education industry.
Joe founded quub to manufacture small, cost-effective satellites designed to gather data and monitor Earth, its weather systems, and its environmental resources. His goal is to create a network of satellites that give first responders, companies, and municipalities the data they need to respond and act quickly.
NATHANIEL EVRY – Chief Research Officer
Nathaniel Evry brings 14 years of experience to his role as CRO of quub, with a background in all levels of information technology.
One of Nathaniel’s early accomplishments in technology was to be among the first to create 3D-printed prosthetics for children, with the e-NABLE Prosthetic Hand STEM Project. More recently, Nathaniel has been developing software that predicts, tracks, simulates, and visualizes the path of satellites around Earth in real time.
At quub, Nathaniel is focused on building the first privately-owned aerospace technology company to successfully deploy and manage a full network constellation of pico-satellites on orbit.

Nick Elzer was born and raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, currently studies manufacturing engineering technology at Millersville University, and joined quub because the company sits at the intersection of space and creation.
At quub, Nick works on development and prototyping for electrical and sensor integration, as well as the development of satellite schematics and PCB boards.
As Nick continues studying manufacturing engineering technology, he aims to apply what he learns at quub and deepen his experience in the smallsat industry, and he looks forward to the opportunity of having his work reach low Earth orbit.
Originally from Orel, Russia, Daniil attends Penn State University in State College, Pennsylvania, and is pursuing a double major in computer engineering and German.
Daniil’s experience includes working as an assistant at his school’s technology department, as a freelance chatbot developer, and as a backend developer for Ruben Engineering.
At quub, Daniil contributed to the release of Traxat, our tabletop satellite tracker, which was designed entirely in-house with software written in Rust and hardware designed using parametric CAD programs.
Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Tim Martell is currently studying aerospace engineering at Tuskegee University in Alabama.
Tim is an engineer at quub, where he assists in the design and creation of satellite and deployer elements and performs flight and test hardware assembly. He also helps to organize and maintain the lab and cleanroom environments.
Tim’s proudest accomplishment at quub is knowing that he helped contribute to the development of a satellite that is orbiting Earth right now—and he looks forward to contributing to future projects just like that one.
