This page is intended not only as an introduction to the research projects and competitions that SEDS-USA hosts, but as a resource for other competitions that chapters may be interested in.

Technical projects and competitions can keep your current members engaged and active, help recruit new members, and give your chapters exposure within SEDS-USA and within the space industry as a whole.

SEDS/SSPI Satellite Design Competition

The SEDS/SSPI Satellite Design Competition is an annual competition held by SEDS-USA and Space and Satellite Professionals International (SSPI). The project does not ask teams to develop hardware, but challenges them to take a broad look at problems in the satellite industry, often considering technical design, business cases, and spectrum allocation/debris mitigation regulations.

Overall, the project has a somewhat low barrier to entry and is a fantastic introduction to the satellite industry.

Past prompts have included:

  • Space Solar Power
  • Satellite Communications Networks for the Cislunar Economy
  • Solar Electric Space Tugs
  • Space Debris Mitigation and Removal

CubeSats and Other Hardware Projects

Weather Balloons

Rovers

[MRT Note]: Could probably be expanded to robotics competitions

Quadcopters

[MRT Note]: I know nothing about these.

Space Business Pitch Competitions
