Due to COVID-19 and the amount of required travel, we have decided to cancel the launch weekend for the health and safety of the teams and staff. We are sad to have to cancel, especially knowing the months of hard work and preparation from all the teams.

CDR will be the LAST part of the competition, and the deadline is extended until May 8th. CDR reviews will be held May 11 through May 22.

1st-5th place will be awarded off of combined PDR and CDR scores.

2020 Virtual Awards Ceremony

AAS has organized an annual student design-build-launch competition for space-related topics giving students the satisfaction of being involved with the end-to-end life cycle of a complex engineering project, from conceptual design, through integration and test, actual operation of the system and concluding with a post-mission summary and debrief.

This annual competition is open to teams from universities and colleges. Teams must be able to design and build a space-type system, following the approved competition guide, and then compete against each at the end of two semesters to determine the winners. Rockets will be provided but teams are responsible for funding the construction of their CanSat and all travel/lodging expenses.
