Mission Laboratory
19 Mar 2018







​The Advanced Space Concepts Lab is also home to one of the facilities sponsored by the Space Application Catapult: a Mission Laboratory with a Nano‐bed CubeSat Mission Development Facility, enabling access to flight‐like hardware for satellite technology providers, similar to the one on the Harwell site. This is the first Mission Lab to be implemented away from the Catapult site. It is the first step in the planned deployment of a national network of Mission Lab facilities planned by the Catapult. The Catapult is aiming to develop a small satellite supply chain in the UK and the Strathclyde Lab will provide easier geographic access to technology providers in the northern part of the UK. The Lab is expected to be used extensively by the Nano‐bed manufacturer, ClydeSpace​​.
