The University Space Center of Montpellier (CSU)
An educational platform of Montpellier University for Science and Technology through nanosatellite engineering.
In France, the CSU is the leader in the development of student nanosatellites. We are also a European center of reference devoted to bringing together equipment and skills for the development, production, testing and operation of nanosatellites. These projects involve student interns and encourage regional economic development.
To do this, the CSU has facilities and equipment dedicated to nanosatellite engineering:
- A control center including a transceiver radio station and an antenna;
- A dedicated CIC room (concurrent engineering center);
- AIT facilities (Assembly, Integration and Testing) including a clean room and multiple workshops;
The CSU develops its own nanosatellite technology producing 1U and 3U CubeSats with the support of the Van Allen Foundation and the French and European space agencies (CNES and ESA).
