Course content

The Centre for Electronic Imaging and the Space Instrumentation Group at The Open University have been involved in several Cube Satellite initiatives over recent years. The CEI provided a flight-imaging instrument for UKube-1 and a second instrument for AlSat-Nano, which is currently still in flight operations. We have also performed studies into possible technology and missions for CubeSats both to evaluate new technology, and perform science measurements in space. The Cube satellite research studentship would span a range of activities from development of concepts, to build and design of hardware, and analysis of flight data.
