Welcome to CanSAT 2016

The DIT School of Computing is proud to once again sponsor and orgainse the Irish Leinster Regional Competition for 2016. Teams will be selected early in October, and the National Event will be formally launched in the DIT on the 1st of October.

What is CanSat?

A CanSat is a simulation of a real satellite, integrated within the volume and shape of a soft drink can. The challenge for the students taking part in this competition is to fit all the major subsystems found in a satellite, such as power, sensors and a communication system, into this minimal volume. The CanSat is then launched to an altitude of a few hundred metres by a rocket, or dropped from a platform or captive balloon, where it carries out its scientific experiment and achieves a safe landing.
