The 3rd iteration of the Canadian Satellite Design Challenge was held in Ottawa earlier this summer. An impressive design by the University of Manitoba challenged conventional models for CubeSats by introducing a modular architecture for all elements of the spacecraft. The innovative design earned the team a 2 nd place finish and lots of praise from the judges for not settling for conventional standards. In this presentation, the team will provide an overview of the spacecraft highlighting the elements that set their design apart from the competition.

The 2016 Canadian Space Society (CSS) 15th Annual Summit will be held in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the Inn at the Forks from November 14-15th, 2016. The Summit is one of Canada’s leading conferences devoted to space science, policy, research and technology. It brings together space professionals from industry, academia, government, military and enthusiasts from all walks of life. The CSS Summit is the place to learn about the latest trends, technologies and political issues taking place in the space industry.
With technical sessions on everything from astronomy to space applications, life sciences to law and policy, the CSS Summit touches upon every facet affecting Canada’s space capabilities and potential.
The theme for this year’s summit is “At the Centre of it All” since Winnipeg is geographically situated in the centre of Canada and has a thriving aerospace industry. Manitoba is home to Canada’s third largest aerospace industry. Some of these companies include Magellan Aerospace (Official Summit Sponsor), GE Aerospace, and Boeing, just to name a few.
The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is pleased to confirm the dates for the next Canadian Space Exploration Workshop (CSEW 2016): November 24-25, 2016.
