Space Systems Laboratory

Welcome to the Space Systems Laboratory

The Space Systems Lab offers unique and interesting challenges to students from disciplines across the College of Engineering. Working on complex and highly integrated aerospace projects allows a student to gain experience working with teams of students from different engineering fields as well as with engineers from NASA and industry. Projects include developing, as well as providing the first payload to, a new research standard aboard the International Space Station, developing the first student built satellite to be launched with a NASA mission, and being the first to bring the CubeSat standard to sub-orbital space. In addition, students are involved in developing the infrastructure to support these missions including a thermal vacuum chamber, vibration facility, clean room, and a six monitor console station to support the efforts on the ISS. The Space Systems Lab has a long history of success in developing Small Space and we are looking forward to continuing that tradition.
