Nanosatellite Workshop - Mission Analysis and Design

Mission Analysis & Design
University of Granada
Nanosatellite Workshop - Mission Analysis and Design
Small Satellites are the present and the future of NewSpace. Their agility and versatility have democratized the access to Space and the emergence of new players. This workshop provides insights about the Mission Analysis and Design of a Nanosatellite, from the concept to the system's requirements and operations, with a focus on learning by doing. The students participate in the process of designing a CubeSat space mission.

The workshop - with a duration of 3h30m - will give a thorough introduction to Mission Analysis and Design of Nanosatellite Missions with focus on learning by doing. The Nanosat Mission Concept can be used to provide hands-on experience to students and professionals about Small Satellite Missions allowing them to learn, interact, and practice with the different aspects of a cubesat. Also, the students will participate in the process of designing a Space Mission from scratch.

With this workshop, students should be able to:
  • Identify the primary elements of a Space Mission
  • Understand and qualify the primary constraints of a cubesat mission
  • Identify the tools and processes used in Mission Analysis
  • Understand what are Concept of Operations
  • Clearly communicate which are the most common cubesat subsystems
  • Identify the main subsystems on a cubesat
  • Understand the requirements and constraints of each subsystem
  • Apply the acquired knowledge to the KitSat Platform

What you'll get

The Workshop will function as follows:

  • Introduction to Mission Analysis & Design, 45 min

The students will receive insight into the primary inputs to the design of a Space Mission, as well as the specific aspects regarding Mission Analysis, with special emphasis on the processes and the Concept of Operations.


  • Introduction to Systems Engineering, 45 min

The students will learn about the most common Subsystems (such as TTC, Payload, OBC, EPS, ADCS) of Small Satellites. Students will be in contact with the Standards, Interfaces, Buses, and Protocols that are most common in Small Satellite missions.


  • Hands-on! Nanosat Mission, 2h

The students will need to design and analyze a mission concept provided by the lecturer and identify requirements, constraints, as well as propose design solutions for their own Mission Concept identifying payload and subsystems to accomplish their Mission Objectives. Students will be put in a competitive environment, meaning that they will work collaboratively in teams to solve a challenge and compete for the best mission concept. They will need to be innovative, simple, and agile. Also, the students may be introduced to the KitSat platform and get their hands-on a CubeSat educational satellite.
