Overview

A CanSat is a small satellite in the shape of a commercial beverage can that performs several measuring tasks. In this course, a CanSat is designed, built and tested in the field during a rocket launch. Therefore, all basics of topics related to exciting area of space technologies is imparted and practical skills for the development of a CanSat are trained. The theoretical units are supplemented by practical exercises. Parts of the CanSat are developed in intensely supervised small groups. During an excursion to a site in Berlin where space related companies and institutions are located, the participants shall gain insight into facilities used for the development of satellites.

Learning goals:

  • Apply basic skills in mechanical design, electrical design and microcontroller programming in a hands-on project
  • Describe the main elements of astronautics
  • Describe the subsystems of a satellite
  • Reason and solve problems analytically
  • Manage working in an interdisciplinary team
  • Apply defined steps in managing a group project
  • Justify design choices from a technical and programmatic point of view
  • Build and operate a system which behaves similar to a satellite
  • Prepare for an experimental campaign
  • Present project results properly in a review
