Human Capacity Development Grant for the F'SATI space programme
Over the past few years F’SATI has proved their worth in the higher education sector and has positioned itself as CPUT’s flagship programme. It developed and launched Africa’s first CubeSat in 2013, produced 50 engineers and has established itself as a CubeSat technology support hub for Africa.
It is also home to the Africa Space Innovation Centre, an innovation hub that boasts an impressive product line of satellite communications systems that are being marketed internationally by Clyde Space in Scotland.
The Institute’s Human Capacity Development Grant from the National Research Foundation (NRF) for the FSATI@CPUT space programme has been renewed for the next three years. The NRF manages the contract on behalf of the Department of Science and Technology which has funded the F’SATI Space Programme since 2009.
