The ‘Fly Your Satellite!’ programme gives to teams “engaged in the design of a CubeSat mission the opportunity to build, test, launch and operate their own satellite mission with support from ESA specialists”.

“A panel of ESA experts reviewed the proposals and shortlisted eight university student teams to visit ESA’s Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) as part of the Fly Your Satellite! programme’s Selection Workshop, taking place this week from the 1st to 5th of May.” In this short list is the IST team:

ISTnanosat-1, Instituto Superior Técnico, Portugal, who will use their CubeSat to demonstrate an aircraft detection technology
