PACE lab was establish in 2003 at National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan by Prof. Miau from Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics and Prof. Juang from Department of Electrical Engineering. Since then, PACE lab has been involved in several microsatellite and nanosatellites projects in collaboration with both national and international organizations including Taiwan NSPO, VKI, and Russia. Our Taiwan's first nanosatellite, PACE, was successfully launched in June 2014 and now we are working on another nanosatellite project, PHOENIX which is selected as one of the Cubesat for QB50 project.
