Student CanSat Competition

Category: Planetary Exploration

Event Format: Rocket Launch

Date: June 13-15, 2014

Location: MCM Eleganté Suites 4250 Ridgemont Drive, Abilene, TX 79606, US

This annual competition is open to teams from universities and colleges. Teams must be able to design and build a space-type system, following the approved competition guide, and then compete against each at the end of two semesters. Rockets will be provided but teams are responsible for funding the construction of their CanSat and all travel/lodging expenses.

The 2014 mission simulates a sensor payload traveling through a planetary atmosphere sampling the atmospheric composition during descent. The overall CanSat system is composed of two primary components, a science payload and a re-entry container that protects the payload during ascent, "near-apogee" deployment and initial re-entry/descent.
