Our undergraduate students achieved to take the 4th place at the CANSAT 2018 - Model Satellite Competition among 41 pre-elected participant teams from various countries of the world.
The name of the team is "Cervos" and the students are all members of Hacettepe University Student Society of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, founded in October 2016 under the supervision of Dr. Dincer Gökcen, our department's faculty member.
At the event held on June 8-10, 2018 in Stephenville, Texas, USA, mini satellites designed and produced by the competitors were launched by rockets, and after released at a certain altitude they shared the data they acquired from the environment with the ground station while autonomously returning to the earth's surface. The event was sponsored by U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, NASA, Tarleton State University, American Astronautical Society (AAS), Siemens, Praxis, Kratos and Lockheed Martin.
