Previous Experiments

  

The RockSat Program has completed three iterations; 2009, 2010, and 2011.  Multiple universities have flown a variety of experiments.  Each team competes for a spot on the flight through a series of design reviews.  The Conceptual Design Review (CoDR) presents the mission idea and overview, as well as a description of the payload and general idea of what it will requirement.  The Preliminary Design Review (PDR) consists of an initial design of the payload and describes important components and how they were selected.  It also indicates which parts of the design need to be tested or need more research before they are finalized.  The Critical Design Review (CDR) presents the final design to be constructed, as well as major testing plans for the system.  Teams are selected from these reviews.  Finally, the Launch/Flight Readiness Review is the presentation made to prove that the payload is ready and safe to fly.

Below are the presentations from each of the previous years.  These presentations are a good basis for your presentations or to get an idea of the type of missions and any mission that may need additional research on a future RockSat-C payload!
