Under the terms of the competition, students must form a team and participate in the competition. Each team must also prepare a small satellite model and submit it to the competition. Once launched, the model satellite must ensure the function of collecting the necessary data from the sensors before landing. The satellite must be able to perform the task, sending this information as a telemetry packet to the appropriate interface. The mission means that the satellite to be developed by the students will detect the separation autonomously after the carrier is disconnected and, if successfully disconnected, will record a video image of the Earth’s surface and store it on the internal memory card.
