Jeremy Munday selected for NASA Smallsat Technology Partnership Award

Prof. Jeremy Munday (Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering/IREAP/NanoCenter) was selected to receive a NASA Smallsat Technology Partnership Award.  He was only one of 8 selected recipients out of approximately 100 applicants this year.

This Smallsat program sponsors teams of University researchers who collaborate with counterparts in NASA to develop technology needed for future small, affordable spacecrafts.  It provides up to $100,000/year to the University participants, along with personnel support for NASA collaborators.

Prof. Munday's group will be partnering with Tiffany Russell (Marshall Space Flight Center) to develop reconfigurable solar sails that can be used to orient and position spacecrafts without using traditional propellants.
