About Spacecraft Research and Design Center

SRDC SignThe Spacecraft Research and Design Center at the Naval Postgraduate School consists of six state-of-the art laboratories.  These laboratories are used for instruction and research in space system engineering and space operations curricula. The emphasis has been on providing students with hands-on experience in the design, analysis, testing of space systems and to provide facilities for experimental research.

The emphasis in the research areas is on acquisition, tracking and pointing of flexible spacecraft with optical payloads; active vibration control, isolation, and suppression using smart structures; adaptive optics, beam control; space system design, and computer-aided design tools. These laboratories have been used in joint projects with the Naval Satellite Operational Center, NRL, AFRL, ONR, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing.
