Supporting QUB and Cube Sat Development

DSC_0175

We are delighted to have supported Queens University Belfast’s School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Departments in the last month in development of Cube Sat. Resonate Testing supported MSc students using our vibration table to simulate actual vibration conditions during launch.  We are keen to use the strong innovation and STEM culture that exists within the staff at Resonate to support the next generation of engineers and science graduates.

Dr. Gasser Farouk Abdelal from Queens University’s School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering mentored the MSc students in the development of the prototype and analytical tools for analysing Cube Sat technology, a project which has been embraced globally. Dr Abdelal reiterated the importance of providing physical test capability to support development of analytical tools. The students have been provided a fabulous opportunity to hone analytical skills with physical test data, this type of cooperation provides superb learning opportunities for the students, ensuring that their entry into industry or academia is grounded in the application of best practice within industry and academia.
