By: Marissa Lodato

Join aerospace professionals around the globe in creatively solving problems in the Fall 2017 edition of the EAP University Grant Competition. Full-time undergraduate and graduate students are invited to demonstrate their problem solving and creative skills using AGI software. Applicants will use STK and select modules to develop a solution for a real-world problem of their design.

Possible themes to consider include, but are not limited to: space situational awareness, space exploration, space mission design and operations, Example: NASA Journey to Mars 2033, UAV and aircraft missions, electronic systems, and battlespace management and operations, Example: NASA UAS in the NAS

Creativity is key! Entrants are also encouraged to integrate STK with additional tools to demonstrate the analytical value of integrated multiple tools to reach an analytical solution.

Why Enter?

Funding! The top scenario will receive a $1,000 grant award, and two second-place winners will receive $500
