MIT's Space Systems Laboratory

The SSL encompasses expertise in attitude determination and control, avionics, communications, optical and RF payloads, systems engineering, structural dynamics, and integrated modeling and simulation. These competencies are applied to the development of on-orbit test beds, small satellites, and related algorithms with partners from across academia, industry, and government. The laboratory has various in-house facilities for the design, fabrication, integration, and test of flight hardware.

The SSL works with partners across industry, government, and academia to develop next-generation space systems.
