Come earn hundreds of dollars in cash prizes at THE competition of IAP 2006! the challenge is big and so are the prizes!

Teams of all shapes and sizes are invited to compete in our 4-part satellite design challenge. All you need is at least one MIT student and a week to work. But with stakes this high, you may want to put your heads together -- grab hallmates, classmates, alumni, anyone affiliated with MIT, and join the competition!

Teams will be challenged to develop detailed designs for one or more of these small satellite subsystems: Communications, Power, Attitude Determination & Control. Those who take on all three are also welcomed to enter the bonus Avionics challenge! (Teams can receive extra design points for designing the avionics for the previous three subsystems). Sign up today! (Deadline 5PM, January 18)
