BalloonSats are a relatively easy way to get experiments off the ground and into our upper atmosphere i.e. near space. With BalloonSats, we can learn about space physics and engineering, test equipment for future space flight, conduct interesting experiments, take pictures and video from up to 30480 meter in the air (more than three times the height of Mt. Everest) and more!
This competition will provide the background knowledge needed to facilitate near space explorations in their own classroom. Here you will get to learn about how to proceed on like a conceptual satellite design phase gearing you up for future missions. Your module require work into various departments like Attitude Determination and Control System, Command and Data Handling, Ground Station & Telemetry, Housekeeping & Descent Control, Power Unit and Circuitry, Structure and Payload Health Unit, Integration, On Board Computing And Software, Fault analytics and Management. It’s a multi-disciplinary project involving all the departments of engineering and certainly will take you further into building space missions.
