Stellenbosch still a space centre with international CubeSat project
May 1, 2014 Editor 0
The Electronic Systems Laboratory (ESL) of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Stellenbosch University is strongly reaffirming its position as one of South Africa’s leading centres for satellite technology and expertise. It is currently manufacturing 15 CubeSat control units (more precisely, Attitude Determination and Control Subsystems or ADCSs) for export, as well as assembling the country’s next satellite, the ZA-AeroSat CubeSat. These activities all form part of the QB50 project, led by the European Space Agency (ESA).
