Project Rapid

Project Rapid is dedicated to planning, structuring, and executing future CubeSat programs at UCLA. With the completion of the ELFIN CubeSat (the first satellite developed entirely at UCLA, initiated by the Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences), Bruin Space is actively pursuing future CubeSat opportunities. Under Project Rapid, students with the highest levels of engineering/management skills and project experience will seek mission and flight opportunities that will incorporate UCLA researchers and/or industry partnerships to develop CubeSats for launch. Rapid missions are intended to encompass any and all space opportunities, including scientific investigations and technology demonstrations. They will be geared towards quick and efficient mission development so that students involved will have the opportunity to experience a CubeSat program end-to-end during their college career.


Rapid is currently seeking an initial CubeSat opportunity.
