Manchester CanSat Project (MCP) is a student-led project at the University of Manchester, hosted by Manchester Satellite Development Group. A CanSat is a can-sized satellite that is typically launched in sounding rockets or dropped from drones. We consist of four main areas of activity: the AAS CanSat Competition Team, the UK University CanSat Competition, Weekly Workshops and Outreach Activities. Each of our four activities are important to us and we have a very dedicated team working behind all of them.
Please feel free to explore our site to discover what we do in more detail.
As always, we are grateful for our sponsors; the Departments of MACE, EEE, and CompSci of the University of Manchester, the Aerospace Research Institute, the Space Universities Network, the Institute of Physics, and UKSEDs.
