University of Waterloo Satellite Design Team
The University of Waterloo Satellite Team (WatSat) is a group of 30 passionate students serious about designing, building, and sending a satellite into space on a never-before-completed mission. WatSat consists of students with technical expertise across Systems Design, Mechanical, Mechatronics, Computer Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, and beyond. Every two years WatSat, an affiliate of the Waterloo Space Society, enters the Canadian Satellite Design Challenge (CSDC). This year, the purpose of the team is to create a 3U CubeSat from off-the-shelf components with the purpose of monitoring changes in the arctic sea-ice.
