Nanosatellite Research Group


Welcome to the Nanosatellite Laboratory at the Lassonde School of Engineering . The Nanosatellite Laboratory, part of the Earth and Space Science and Engineering (ESSE) department at Lassonde, is an interdisciplinary team of students working to enhance the capabilities of small (very small!) spacecraft.

The Nanosatellite Laboratory aims to design the next generation of satellite technologies for improved power-generation and distribution, ultra-precise attitude determination and control, and microphotonic payload development. The Nanosatellite Laboratory works closely with industrial partners to ensure timely deployment and our graduate students have a strong record of placement in industry.

The nanosatellite research group is always seeking bright and motivated students to help us tackle interesting research questions, please browse our "Current Projects" page to get a sense of what we are currently working on and where we are headed. Interested applicants are encouraged to contact the Nanosatellite Laboratory principal investigator, Regina Lee.
