About this event


The University of Surrey and its spin-out, SSTL, are world leaders in the design, construction and operation of micro-satellites.

Recent technological advances have made it possible to construct even smaller satellites, at an order of magnitude less cost. These “nano-satellites” open up many new possibilities for space exploration. In 2000, Surrey launched its first 6.5 kg nano-satellite: “SNAP-1”, which demonstrated remote inspection and autonomous orbital manoeuvring using advanced miniaturised technologies.
 
Since then, the advent of the international “CubeSat” standard, has enabled whole new classes of space mission to be undertaken by Universities, commercial enterprises and Space Agencies, such as NASA. Soon, such spacecraft will be exploring the Moon and solar system, beyond. This lecture will present the state of the art in highly miniaturised spacecraft and discuss the Surrey’s pioneering role in these developments.
