Educational training and demonstrate CubeSat platform technologies including propulsion module.


Constructed around innovative designs for thermal management, structure, RF-MEMS, Controller Area Network (CAN), and for Attitude and Guidance control. Develop a cold/hot gas propulsion system for attitude control, a mono-/bi-fuel engine (“kickmotor”) for orbit control, Multifunctional Micro/Nano systems for satellites (MMNS).

Each major project embraced a number of subprojects aiming to develop stand-alone systems, such as a Communication Module with Thermal Management Function, a Sun Sensor, a Position Sensitive Detector Module for docking, a Power Conditioning Module, etc., applicable to nanosatellites in general.
