The Local Ionospheric Measurements Satellite at the Pennsylvania State University

The design of LionSat is a new project at Penn State University where students from diverse backgrounds and technical fields get the opportunity to develop a small satellite. This mission, as part of the University Nanosat Program, requires students to apply their classroom education to design of a flight-worthy spacecraft that will measure properties of the ionosphere. If LionSat is successful, it may fly on the Space Shuttle or another expendable launch vehicle. Please explore our website and discover more about now you can get involved in LionSat!
