UTIAS Space Flight Laboratory (UTIAS/SFL) collaborates with
business, government and academic institutions on spacecraft
projects and the development of new space technologies. As
a laboratory at the University of Toronto, its aim is to promote
the use of novel technologies in space, and to train graduate
students to strengthen the Canadian skill base in space systems
vision of the Space Flight Laboratory is to revolutionize
the space industry by enabling science and technology missions
and the provision of space services at least one hundred times
cheaper than present day missions, with spacecraft development
taking less than two years. The means to realize this vision
is through the judicious application of the "microspace"
approach in exploiting the latest commercial technologies
in space and following a disciplined approach to the design,
adaptation, testing and qualification of new space systems.
