University Nanosat Program

Founded in 1999, the University Nanosatellite Program (UNP) was the first federally-funded research program funding small satellite projects at Universities. The intention was two-fold: to provide systems engineering training to students to prepare them for the industrial workforce and to develop small satellite expertise at US universities.

The UNP is part of the President’s STEM education portfolio and is monitored by the National Science and Technology Council as mandated under the America Competes Reauthorization Act of 2010.
