ISNET/RJGC Workshop on "CUBESAT TECHNOLOGIES: Its Design and Development"


 15th Oct – 19th Oct 2017


Amman, Jordan

Inter-Islamic Network on Space Sciences & Technology (ISNET), in collaboration with Royal Jordanian Geographic Centre (RJGC) is planning to hold a 5-day ISNET/RJGC Workshop on “CubeSat Technologies, Design and Development” from 15th Oct – 19th Oct 2017 in Amman, Jordan

The workshop shall be conducted by Prof. Dr. Alim Rustem Aslan from Istanbul Technical University. He has lead several satellite projects with successful launches into orbit, including the first cubic satellite made in Turkey.


The overall workshop shall be divided into three segments: tutorial session on CubeSat basics, intensive hands-on training, and seminar presentations based on abstracts submitted. The following major topics will be covered:
