Micro-Satellite Technology


In order to enhance student innovation and engineering abilities in spacecraft design, a student micro-Satellite (BUAA-SAT) program is sponsored by Beihang University (BUAA). After years work, BUAA-SAT has completed its preliminary design phase. All subsystems have been prototyped and demonstrated. Now the flight model and qualified tests of space environments are conducted. Meanwhile a training platform for microsatellite has been formed at Beihang University, which contains document materials for design, simulation as well as devices and facilities for test. On this situation, Beihang University has planned to extend a new master training & research direction/program “micro-satellite technology” as an important education content implemented at UN Regional Centre for Space Science & Technology Education in East Asia and the Pacific.


The principal objectives of the training program are as follows:
(1)To train students from UN Member States for Basic Micro/Nano-Satellite Technology and Applications;
(2)To introduce state-of-art micro/nano-satellite technology,and its future trends;
(3)To promote deployment and usage of new and innovative micro/nano-satellite technologyand applications to the UN Member States;
To promote the academic exchange and the technical expertise between Member States towards for better collaboration on micro/nano-satellite technology and applications; and others.


After years work, BUAA-SAT has completed its preliminary design phase. All subsystems have been prototyped and demonstrated. The satellite prototype has been integrated and tested. Now the flight model and qualified tests of space environments are conducted now. Meanwhile, with the development of BUAA-Sat, a training platform for microsatellite has been formed at Beihang University, which contains document materials for design, simulation as well as devices and facilities for test. On this situation, Beihang University has planned to extend a new master training & research direction/program “micro-satellite technology” specially for UN Regional Centre for Space Science & Technology Education in East Asia and the Pacific
