Dr Michael Swartwout

Associate Professor
Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology, Saint Louis University

Michael Swartwout studies the design, operation and success rates of space systems, with an emphasis on very small spacecraft (CubeSats). He is particularly interested the ways that design influences organizational structure and vice versa, and how those influences can aid or impair mission success. Dr. Swartwout tests these ideas via teams of undergraduate students, who design, build, test and fly spacecraft. The first mission flew in 2013, and the next one will fly in late 2015.
