NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative (CSLI) is collaborating with the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Space Force to solicit applicants for a set of hands-on learning engagements that will help higher education institutions, faculty, and students elevate efforts to build small satellites and enhance the potential to be selected for flight opportunities.
Teams selected for the University Nanosatellite Program (UNP) Mission Concept-1: 2023 Summer Series, will receive systems engineering training that prepares students for the industrial workforce while developing small satellite expertise at U.S. universities.
The program, which runs from May through August 2023, also enhances students' potential to be selected for flights to space as part of NASA's CSLI in November 2023 and the full U.S. Air Force UNP in 2024.
The program allows faculty and students to form teams without draining university resources, and includes travel funding for kickoff, final event, and any in-person reviews, among other benefits.
All U.S colleges and universities are eligible, teams at minority-serving institutions and historically Black colleges and universities are strongly encouraged to apply for the Mission Concepts-1: 2023 Summer Series in accordance with the criteria in the Request for Proposal. The deadline to apply is Feb. 3, 2023.
NASA's collaboration with the U.S Air Force and U.S. Space Force helps broaden access to space and strengthen the capabilities and knowledge of higher education institutions, faculty, and students.
