General Information about the Türksat Satellite Model Competition

Türksat Türkey’s leading technology company, is taking another step to further expand human resources in the field of satellite and space technologies with the organization of the competition.

With many universities from Turkey competing in competitions organized abroad, it gives them the chance to share their experience and knowledge with other universities at an event organized in our country.

Taking into consideration the high cost of participating in competitions that are organized abroad, students have the opportunity to gain experience in actual space projects with a low budget.

During the flight stage, each satellite model is required to send the telemetry information, with the sensor on board, to the ground station. In addition, with every flight, the competing team will have to fulfill special tasks designated by the competition board (pressure, height, sink rate, battery level, photograph and/or video recording, equipment opening, load carrying, ability to send location upon landing and so forth).

The annually organized Türksat Satellite Model Competition gives undergraduate and graduate students, who are students of engineering, the opportunity to transform theoretical knowledge into practice and to share interdisciplinary work and experience. 

In addition to sharing experiences with different university teams, it also provides students the opportunity to set up communication with our expert personnel working in satellite operations, companies from the sector and non-governmental organizations.
