“CanSat” is “simulated” satellite of 350ml juice cans size. Some empty juice cans mounted with battery, microcomputer, communication device, sensor, GPS, is launch using a small rocket. It performs data acquisition and communication experiments while it is falling to the ground.
Suborbital experiments of 350ml can sized satellites (CanSats) and rovers to train young engineers.
CanSats/rovers are released from amateur rockets (launched by Aeropac) and it has to reach a designated point autonomously using ground or air-locomotion.
UNISEC supports Japanese laboratories/organisations to design and develop CanSats and to participate in ARLISS launch opportunities.
