University students can now get ready to fly their satellite by applying to the European Space Agency now.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is encouraging CubeSat student teams, who are working on one, two or three-unit CubeSats with educational scope, to apply for the fourth edition of the Fly Your Satellite! program.
This opportunity is open to University teams, composed of bachelor, master and PhD students from eligible states, who are close to integrating their satellite*.
Selected teams will have the unique opportunity of turning their spacecraft system into an operating CubeSat launched to space by receiving direct professional support from ESA, dedicated training sessions, and access to dedicated state-of-the-art facilities.
The ESA encourages students to join the list of other Fly Your Satellite! teams who have had the chance to learn from their participation in this unique hands-on spacecraft program and apply working methods from professional space programs to your own space project.
*Note: New opportunities are expected to open in spring 2022 for CubeSat student teams who would like to benefit from the support in the consolidation of their design, or to get access to the CubeSat Support Facility.
Proposal Submission Deadline: February 6, 2022, 23:59 CET
A shortlist of teams will be invited to the Selection Workshop expected to take place in March 2022, at ESA-ESTEC in Noordwijk, the Netherlands.
