Student at Test Bench

Since 1989, NPS, the Space Systems Academic Group (SSAG), and participating departments have dedicated both labor and material resources to the development of space systems laboratories and facilities designed to support space systems academic and research programs. A capable infrastructure of facilities and support personnel was brought together to support the Small Satellite Design Program. In addition, a number of engineering design and analysis tools were acquired with expertise cultivated in the engineering staff to allow officer students to quickly and effectively utilize these state-of-the-art tools for their course work as well as in their thesis research.
