Spacecraft Group Organization - 1-01

Brigham Young University's Spacecraft Group, consisting of the Spacecraft Research Lab and the Spacecraft Club, develops powerful, low-cost technologies and operates them in space, training a generation of skilled and passionate spacecraft engineers in the process.

The Spacecraft Research Lab develops new spacecraft technologies for in-space demonstration. Founded in 2017, research is currently focused on proposing a U-class scatterometer to the National Science Foundation.

BYU’s Spacecraft Club helps undergraduate students become spacecraft engineers. Club members of various disciplines design, build, and fly spacecraft as they compete in the Spacecraft Competition, take on Spacecraft Challenges, and participate on the Spacecraft Team. You can get involved today!

Passive Inspection CubeSats (PICs) is Brigham Young University's first spacecraft mission and the first mission of the multidisciplinary Advanced Spacecraft Team. The PICs mission will demonstrate low-risk, low-cost, spacecraft inspection by a passive, fly-away probe. Two PICs are manifest for launch into a 450 km polar orbit in 2018 on Virgin Orbit's LauncherOne.
