The Strathclyde Space Institute is a multi-disciplinary venture addressing key challenges in space systems engineering, satellite applications and access to space. Our research centres and associated STEM outreach activities include:
Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory
The Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory is an award-winning research centre undertaking frontier research on visionary space systems. Our work is delivering radically new approaches to space systems engineering to underpin new space-derived products and services. Visit the ASCL Website.
Centre for Future Air-Space Transport Technology
The Centre for Future Air-Space Transportation Technology (cFASTT) is a multidisciplinary research unit that aims to develop and integrate the range of technological disciplines that will be required for future high-speed airliners and access-to-space systems to become a reality. Visit the cFASTT Website.
Space Mechatronics Systems Technology Laboratory
The Space Mechatronic Systems Technology (SMeSTech) Laboratory advances research in space related mechatronic technology and systems development. This is achieved by generating novel conceptual solutions for space exploitation which require high-level intelligence, fast response and efficiency. Visit the SMeSTech Website.
Centre for Space Science and Applications
The Centre for Space Science and Applications works on a broad range of space physics problems, such as testing the Equivalence Principle and gravitational wave detection from space, and the exploitation of satellite data for environmental monitoring of the Earth’s Oceans. Visit the Centre for Space Science and Applications Website.
Scottish Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications
The Scottish Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications aims to foster economic growth by engaging with innovative small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), large companies and the public sector to grow commercial Satellite Applications. The Centre’s focus is within a range of sectors including Energy, Maritime, Transport and Future Cities helping to stimulate growth of satellite applications and the economy, both in Scotland, and across the UK. Visit the Scottish Centre's website.
Scottish Space School
The Scottish Space School is an associated STEM activity which aims to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers by highlighting the career opportunities available to young people. The programme comprises a week long summer school with a mix of lectures and workshops delivered by leading researchers and NASA astronauts. Visit the Space School Website.
