Midlands Innovation Space GroupLink opens in a new window

WUSAT offers a low-cost in-orbit test/demonstration opportunity for research or industrial development payloads that require validation in a Space environment.
We aim to develop sustainable satellites that, wherever possible, will carry scientific payloads intended to assist Space sustainability issues.
Our multi-disciplinary team will use approved Systems Engineering methods to design, build, and test a nanosatellite to meet the specific needs of the payload requirement.
This process also provides a unique 'real world' training experience for our high-standard final year MEng student engineers who are preparing to begin their careers - with many aspiring to careers in the Space industry.
WUSAT will also offer low-cost launch / operation support where possible.
