About us

main content

The Advanced Space Concepts Laboratory undertakes frontier research on visionary space systems through a research portfolio funded by the European Research Council, EU FP7, ESA and industrial partners. Our work is delivering radically new approaches to space systems engineering to underpin new technologies for space exploration and new space services.

Our capabilities include spacecraft dynamics and control, end-to-end mission design, software and simulation and a growing capability in microspacecraft systems through a ground station and space hardware development facility. The laboratory has strong links to wider institutional capabilities in spacecraft autonomy, hypersonics, advanced manufacturing, deployable structures and mission risk management.
