We are currently building a Mars rover for the 2017 University Rover Challenge! The rover must be capable of completing several challenges including: terrain traversing, sample retrieval & analysis, astronaut assistance, and equipment servicing.
This year, we are also planning, designing, building, and testing a 3U CubeSat that may have the possibility of being launched into space! The satellite designs involve structural, thermal guidance, command and data handling, communication, power and payload.
URC: Mars Desert Research Station Hanksville, Utah
URC will take place June 1 - 3, 2017.
