Welcome to Space Payload Laboratory 歡迎光臨太空酬載實驗室

Space Payload Laboratory (SPL) was established as common facilities in Graduate Institute of Space Science and Engineering, National Central University since 2006. It was mainly funded to advance Space Science Technology and Astronomy under a plan by NCU to develop first-class universities and top-level research centers from MOE, Taiwan. In 2018 it was further selected as one of the featured centers among Taiwan universities to establish Center for Astronautical Physics and Engineering (CAPE) at NCU for five years.

在國立中央大學太空科學與工程研究所葉惠卿前所長的協助下,於 2006 年設置太空酬載實驗室。過去經費主要來自教育部的五年五百億計畫,而後多以太空酬載實驗室的自籌經費為主。最近在 2018 年獲得教育部高等教育深耕計畫-特色領域研究中心經費全額補助,在五年內建構太空科學與科技研究中心,提升太空所的教學與研究設施,增進我國太空產業與科技能力。

The SPL provided Taiwan's space community fundamental infrastructures for payloads in designs, analysis, fabrications, and tests. In the 1st 5 years, scientific missions were carried on sounding rockets. In the 2nd 5 years, we focus on designing/fabricating science payloads for satellites to provide products and test services.


Space educations and outreaches are always our main obligations. We have provided opportunities as much as possible for students to explore space via science missions of sounding rockets and satellites. Graduates and undergraduates who are interested in space payload and experimental plasma physics are welcome to join our ranks.
