HSFL was established in May 2007 within the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) and the College of Engineering (CoE) at the University of Hawaii. As a multidisciplinary research and education center HSFL brings together individuals from diverse areas to work on the exploration and understanding of the space environment. The mission of HSFL is to:
Hawaii is located in a unique position to become a low-cost gateway to space and to place the University of Hawaii as the only university in the world to have both satellite fabrication capabilities and unique, direct access to orbital space. This will enable diverse missions that study Earth's oceans and continents from low-Earth orbit, as well as the testing of engineering experiments in the hostile environment of space.
University of Hawaii participants will design, build, launch, and operate microsatellites in the 1 - 150 kg range that can be configured for a variety of science and educational tasks.
Team MembersHSFL is headed by Director Luke Flynn, Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and Planetology (SOEST).
