A CanSat is a simulation of a real satellite, built inside of an empty soft drink can.
The students teams have to design, build, and test a mini-satellite (CanSat). They have to fit all the major subsystems of a satellite, such as power, sensors and communications in a 330 ml soft drink can.
The CanSat will be launched from 1km relative altitude with a rocket, balloon, or drone. The CanSat has to execute a mission and to have a safe landing.
Good luck in CanSat 2017!
