Meteor Mission Statement

Meteor is the first, university-based, project in the world whose ultimate goal is to launch and place small payloads on near earth asteroids and lunar surfaces. Meteor is a hands-on, multi-phase, multi-disciplinary, teaching, and research program for investigating and developing micro-systems engineering, science, and technologies for the exploration and utilization of outer space. The central focus of the project is the launching of a series of small payloads into low earth orbit, the low earth orbit re-launch and control of these payloads toward the moon or near earth asteroids, the landing of these payloads on the surfaces and the data acquisition and remote control of these payloads during the scientific research phase of each mission. This project will provide the students and faculty at RIT, and the scientific community at large, the opportunity to obtain small payload volumes for conducting micro-systems and other scientific experiments in outer space. Meteor will accommodate and promote these multi-disciplinary collaborations.

This project (P07106) specifically involves the design, manufacturing and testing of the Inertial Navigation System and Thrust Vector Control.

Project Readiness Package

The Project Readiness Package Page documents customer needs and expectations, project deliverables (including time frame), budget, and personnel / organizations affiliated with the project. It will serve as the primary source of information for students necessary during Phase 0 (Planning) to develop a SD I plan and schedule including specific deliverables and due dates. The Project Readiness Package will also support Faculty evaluation of project suitability in terms of depth, scope, and student / faculty resources by discipline.
