CubeSats are the catalysts of the NewSpace industry. Thanks to the countless applications they lend themselves to, and their reduced cost, these nanosatellites have spurred a new space race. In this lab, researchers and Interdisciplinary Space Master students can design, develop, and test their own custom nanosatellites.
Concurrent Design Facility
Concurrent engineering is replacing traditional sequential design. Instead of having engineers work on their own, and in consecutive steps on a project, concurrent engineering calls for a collaborative and agile approach. They use connected workstations, and a flexible lab design that changes to suit applications such as space system design, strategic forecasting, space architecture, and feasibility studies.
