CanSat (Competition Over)

A CanSat consists of a soft drink’s can in which all of the subsystems for the carrying out of a certain mission has been miniaturised (power supply, useful load, navigation system and parachute) as a microsatellite. The competing teams must design and build a CanSat that complies with the mission proposed for each edition of the competition (i.e. land on a target). The organisation provides the launch vehicle (a reusable experimental rocket) that lifts and releases the CanSat to a height of between 200 metres and six kilometres.  The CanSat must complete its mission during its descent.
