Start getting your team together now for the 2015 ICESat-2 Mission Hexacopter Engineering Challenge at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.

This challenge will task teams of undergraduates with measuring the height of Earth around us, from tree canopies to bodies of water. The challenge is the first of its kind in a yearly series of ICESat-2 engineering challenge events.

Participating teams will design and build hexacopter multirotors that can create a digital elevation model of a specific area within a predetermined amount of time. They will also submit technical and educational reports describing in detail their efforts throughout the competition process.

Teams will be selected through a proposal and selection process. Multidisciplinary teams are encouraged.
Teams may consist of one to five students and a university mentor/instructor.

Applications are due September 12, 2014. For more details, go to http://icesat.gsfc.nasa.gov/icesat2/epo_hex.php
