Development of miniature satellites is presently of strong interest to university, government, and private industry companies as spacecraft designs are currently trending towards compact, inexpensive, and low power options. A small, lightweight propulsion source is required to enhance the capabilities of these satellites as well as increase their flight duration.

3D CAD Models

Portfolio of past projects using SolidWorks. Some of them were submitted for extra credit while a handful were created just for fun. Would be happy to modify or redo them if offered a position related to CAD modelling or given a FREE license for another 3D CAD software.
