Low-Cost Space Mission and Spacecraft Design
Many organizations, including small companies, amateur spacecraft operators, Government organizations and small countries wish to explore the use of small Spacecraft to advance their understanding of space technology and space operations. This project involves the systematic application of space mission analysis and design approaches focused on the small satellite arena. The student is expected to design an entire low-cost mission using proven space systems engineering techniques.
