In 2021, the German Aerospace Center announced the Microlauncher competition. The winners in different rounds were Rocket Factory Augsburg and Isar Aerospace. Both offer to carry payloads free of charge on their maiden flights. We are applying to transport our own Cubesat on the last flight.
With our mission we want to inspire future specialists for the topic and take away the perceived distance to space travel and satellite technology. For this purpose, we are bringing a small satellite (CubeSat) into space, which is to radio signals to Earth as part of a MINT campaign.
At the same time, we are testing the use of new materials in satellite production as part of the mission together with our partners from industry and research.
