Welcome to the University Nanosat Program (UNP)


The University Nanosat Program’s objective is to train tomorrow’s space professionals by providing a rigorous, four year, concept-to-flight-ready spacecraft competition for U. S. higher education institutions and to enable small satellite research and development (R&D), integration and flight test. Approximately 4500 college students and 33 institutions of higher learning have been involved in this unique experience since its inception in 1999.
