NanoSat Lab


The Nano-Satellite and Payload Laboratory (UPC NanoSat Lab), located in the Technical Univeristy of Catalonia – UPC BarcelonaTech, is a cross-departamental initiative belonging to the Barcelona School of Telecommunications Engineering (ETSETB). With the design and development of nano-satellite missions as its main activity, the lab is focused on the exploration of innovative small spacecraft system concepts and developing and integrating subsystems and payloads for Earth Observation. The lab's industry-grade equipment allows for the testing and qualifying of nano-satellite systems in space conditions (up to 6U). In addition, two ad-hoc ground stations have been installed to operate the launched missions.
