SwissCanSat


Mission

The team must build a CanSat and program it to accomplish the following compulsory primary mission: after release and during descent, the CanSat shall measure the following parameters:

  • Air temperature
  • Air pressure

The secondary mission of the CanSat must be selected by the team. Teams can take ideas from real satellite missions (for example see ESA’s missions), some example secondary missions:

  • Advanced telemetry (GPS location, Radiation levels, Acceleration)
  • Telecommand
  • Landing system
  • Control mechanism (land on a fixed-point target)
