Description:

VIrtual Super-resolution Optics with Reconfigurable Swarms (VISORS) is an NSF sponsored space mission which will deploy a 'distributed space telescope' - a three-piece CubeSat formation that will allow researchers to obtain high-resolution imagery of Sun’s surface. This is a spaceflight project that involves 10 universities across the US with Purdue contribution focused on aerodynamic and thermal design. Undergraduate students on Purdue-VISORS will use modern spacecraft aerodynamics and spacecraft thermal analysis simulations to counteract the space environment effects on VISOR spacecraft and design a safer mission.
