Facilities

The Georgia Tech Space Research institute’s collection of partner organizations brings together a plethora of space-related facilities. From space instrumentation fabrication labs, to space exploration data analysis labs, we aim to lead the state in space research facilities.

Center for Space Hardware Assembly, Fabrication and Testing (C-SHAFT)

The Center for Space Hardware Assembly, Fabrication and Testing focuses on research, prototyping, & qualification of high-reliability micro-devices for deployment in outer space and includes the GTRI Baker Building.

Radio Frequency Anechoic Chamber

The anechoic chamber located at GTRI can be used to conduct EMI/EMC tests on spacecrafts. The facility is instrumented for the indoor testing of electrically small to medium-sized antennas.

S-Band Satellite Ground Station

Georgia Tech offers post launch operations through its high gain S-band and UHF/VHF ground stations. The network has been used to command and control numerous spacecraft. 

Raven Telescope

The Space Object Research Telescope, a Raven-class space surveillance telescope (0.5m, f/8) capable of directly observing on-orbit space objects and validating algorithm performance.
