Session

Technical Poster Session 1: Student Poster Competition

Location

Utah State University, Logan, UT

Abstract

Building a satellite is a large undertaking with a lot of moving parts. Undergraduate students have complicated schedules with even more moving parts. Running a team of 60+ undergraduates toward the goal of launching a satellite is therefore quite the managerial challenge. Detailed on this poster are some specific challenges, along with strategies for mitigating them, that the UMN Small Satellite Research Lab faces in their work toward launching two small satellites.
