Congratulations!!!

Background

SiswaSAT is a nano-scale satellite model that fits into a 325ml standard soda can which able to perform various scientific experiments such as attitude control, image capturing and location determination. All basic subsystems of a satellite (communication, power, command & data handling, etc) are designed to fulfill the mission statement that has been determined earlier on.

This competition is designed to provide the opportunity to experience a hands-on space program at an affordable cost. The competition involves writing a mission proposal, generating design documentation, design reviews, presentation and launching the SiswaSAT to an altitude of 200m using a drone.

The most important aspect of this competition is that each team will learn many important lessons that could be applied throughout their professional career. By developing this project, learning what works and what does not, and also learning to work together as a team, each participant will develop an understanding of the processes essential in developing any project successfully.

About the competition

The mission of this competition is best mission design. The full competition criterias and guidelines will be released during the introductory workshop.
