Join the 8th IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) Antenna Design Contest! Design and build an antenna for a cubesat that enables high-performance communications with a ground station. The top 6 teams will receive up to US $2,500 in travel funds to attend the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Symposium in San Diego, California, July 9–15, 2017 to demonstrate their working systems. From these 6 teams, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be announced at the 2017 IEEE AP-S Awards Banquet at the conference and will receive cash awards of US$1,500, $750 and $250, respectively. Final reports will have the opportunity to be considered for publication in the IEEE AP Magazine. Important deadlines are November 28, 2016 and March 31, 2017.
Design and build a cubesat antenna for enabling high-performance communications with a ground station.
The team should consist of 2 to 5 students, with at least 50% being undergraduate students. For a 5-year Bachelor-cum-Master degree program, students in years 1 to 3 are considered undergraduates. Each team should be advised by a professional mentor who is a member of the IEEE AP-S, but the work needs to be done primarily by the students. No student or mentor should be involved in more than one team.
Send all questions and materials to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “2017 IEEE AP-S Design Contest.” Messages without this subject line may not be received. All submitted materials must be in PDF format according to the guidelines above.
