Our approach

/ 01


Our current mission, CHESS, aims to send two nano-satellites (CubeSat) into Earth orbit. The twin satellites will carry out multiple scientific experiments and technology demonstrations. Our other ongoing mission, CanSat, aims to train and prepare tomorrow's engineers to send small, can-sized satellites into the air.

/ 02


A team of engineers and students coming together to build something that helps us understand the world better is of immense importance. This collaborative effort harnesses the diverse skills and perspectives of individuals, leading to innovative solutions and advancements in our understanding of the world.

/ 03


Our two main objectives are :
- To train the next generation of space engineering students to carry out innovative space projects.

- To bring academia and industry together around common projects to have an impact on the space ecosystem and scientific research.
