NASA and the State of Hawaii signed a three-year, nonreimbursable Space Act Agreement establishing a partnership for space exploration, scientific research, and education initiatives in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The agreement's first annex provides for small satellite development with the University of Hawaii's Hawaii Space Flight Laboratory under a new program called HawaiiSat. The Hawaii Space Flight Laboratory will train engineering and science students to design and build small satellites. Students and professors from the university will be sent to NASA's Ames Research Center to work with scientists and engineers to design, integrate, and manage small satellites. The overall goal of the collaboration is to develop a Hawaii-based program for small spacecraft missions and a satellite project developed and managed by students.
