The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) is developing a small satellite as a vehicle for graduate education in Space Systems as well as a platform for experimentation. The NPSAT1 spacecraft is being designed, built, tested, and will be flown by officer students in the Space Systems Academic Group at NPS. This paper provides an overview of the satellite and current status of the project with a perspective on systems engineering. The NPSAT1 mission, conceived and developed by the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) Space Systems Academic Group (SSAG), is sponsored and executed by the DoD Space Test Program (SMC Det 12).
