Detailed Design and Test Challenges

Online registration. Deadline: February 17, 2020 – at 18:00 CET

In this phase, the specific design, development and testing challenges start.

Each institution will be offering specific challenges on the design, development and testing of nanosatellite components. Some of these challenges will be related to components of the winner nanosatellite design of the first preliminary design competition (lunar fly-by), others to nanosatellite testing facilities and there will also be a challenge on the detailed design of a roscoff worms payload, considered in the second edition of the preliminary design competition (see

Proposed studies by the participating students might also be considered, depending on their feasibility within the project.

As usual, gender balance, multidisciplinary and inter-institution teams in a concurrent engineering environment are highly encouraged.

Please, find below a template for writing the final challenge report.

The deadline for Phase 2 challenges submission is February 15th 2021 (any variation of this deadline shall be communicated in time).

All challenges completed by this date (by handing over the report to the corresponding supervisor), can take part in a final presentation meeting, held before the end of the project (exact date to be communicated in the coming months).

At this event, Phase 2 student teams shall present their work remotely in a 10 minutes presentation. The best presentation/work (based on both this presentation and the evaluation report filled by each supervisor) shall be declared at the end of this meeting and will receive a winner diploma by the NANOSTAR consortium.

All other participating student teams, who have submitted their report, shall receive a participation diploma. Local participation prizes might also be awarded by each individual institution (e.g. USB pens, t-shirts, etc…).
