Last Monday, February 17, the phase II Detailed Design and Test Challenges online registration was closed. In this phase, each NANOSTAR institution offered specific challenges on the design, development and testing of nanosatellite components. Some of these challenges were related to components of the winner nanosatellite design of the first preliminary design competition (lunar fly-by), others […]

This year Interreg celebrates its 30th birthday, focusing on three topics of interest for the European cohesion: youth, a greener Europe and we all have a neighbor. In this context, each month, they will interview one of their emblematic projects related to one of these topics. We transcribe the interview with Filippo Cichocki, visiting professor at […]
In this edition, thirteen multidisciplinary teams of students from the NANOSTAR universities have predesigned a nanosatellite space mission, whose goal is to verify the survivability in space of a marine photosymbiotic species of worms (Roscoff worms), which may one day play an essential role in the creation of artificial ecosystems for deep space exploration missions. […]
The Evaluation Committee, composed of members from all NANOSTAR institutions, evaluating the received designs from student teams, and selecting the winning proposal at Bordeaux‐INP / ENSEIRBMATMECA. This NANOSTAR challenge has consisted in predesigning a nanosatellite that will perform an ambitious scientific mission. The goal of the mission is to verify the survivability in space of a marine […]
A miniature CubeSat has become the first satellite to perform Galileo-based position fixes in orbit using a commercial satnav receiver. CubeSats are nanosatellites based on standardised 10 cm-sized units. Originally devised for educational uses, they are nowadays being put to commercial and technology testing uses. The Swiss Astrocast company is assembling a constellation based on […]
Last Wednesday, October 30, took place the kick-off meeting of the NANOSTAR Work Package 5 at Universidade da Beira Interior (UBI) in Covilhã , Portugal. The priority of this Work Package is to ensure the continuity of the NANOSTAR project with the development of new interuniversity projects and support for the creation of new start-ups. At […]
Today, at UC3M, we presented to students both the re-edition of the preliminary design challenge and the specific UC3M design and test challenges. The time for great ideas and intuitions has finally come! Register for both types of challenges here.
NANOSTAR is a European project to support the training and development of student nanosatellites in the south west of Europe. In this phase, each institution of the project will be offering specific challenges on the design, development and testing of nanosatellite components. NANOSTAR specific design, development and testing challenges start! In this project phase, each […]
If you are participating in the NANOSTAR Space Mission Predesign Challenge 2nd edition, please, take a look at these videos and documents regarding the 1st edition. They can be very useful for the new competition! • Video of the best overall team (team MOON INVADERS): • PDR and video of the best PDR document […]
The 3rd edition of the “Innovation Challenges” event will take place at the ENSEIRB-MATMECA on Monday, September 30th, 2019 from 9am to 5.30pm and will bring together 2nd year students from all sectors of the school. The objective of this event is to allow students to work on a challenge in a phase of idea […]
