Fiscal Year 2013 University NanoSatellite Program


AFOSR, in conjunction with the AFRL Space Vehicles Directorate (AFRL/RV) announces a program to promote and sustain university research and education focused on small satellites (nanosats) and related technologies. The primary outcome of individual projects funded under this program is the design, fabrication and functional testing of a nanosat. Secondary objectives are to foster research in enabling technologies for nanosats and the design of experiments that can be performed by nanosats in orbit. Selected proposers will compete in a competition to recognize a small number of nanosats that have displayed the ability for space launch and operation.
