Nanosat Design Competition

Nanosatellites are small satellites that can be used to gather scientific data, such as information on climate change, ranging from sea level measurements to mapping deforestation.

The competition is inviting entrants to design a nanosatellite that will inform solutions to help tackle climate change.

Competition entrants will compete for a share of a £600,000 Challenge Fund, enabling them to develop and build their satellite design with the potential to launch from a UK spaceport from 2023.

Entry is encouraged from those aged 16+ from any background and with no requirement for previous knowledge, expertise, or experience in the space sector. Applications close on 7 January 2022.

You can also register to attend a virtual launch event on Thursday 11 November 2021.
