What is CanSat ?

  • – CanSat is a Simulation of Real Satellite
  • – The mission can be Simple or Complex
  • – The only requirement is that the Mission Must Fit in Twelve Ounce Soda Can
  • – It performs a Mission and Collects Data
  • – Typical missions can be Atmospheric Measurements, Video Capture, Picture Taking, Communications, or Navigation

The CanSat concept was first introduced in November 1998 by the American professor, Robert Twiggs during a symposium on space systems in Hawaii.

  • – It consists most subsystems found in Satellites
  • – The idea behind this concept is to introduce and train the students to understand the building of a satellite, in shortest possible time
  • – The program will introduce “How CanSats Are built”
  • – The CanSat is launched by dropping from high rise building, balloons, parachute or by drone that simulates the satellite operation in space.
